As mourners in Houston honor the life of George Floyd in Minneapolis, CBS News is learning new details from a nightclub coworker about alleged history between Floyd and Derek Chauvin, the former officer who is charged in Floyd’s death.

Floyd and Chauvin both worked security at a nightclub at the same time. Coworker David Pinney said the two men had a history.
