`Floyd has underlying medical conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart failure,` the prosecution filing states.

Police were also deployed to respond to protests in other cities, including New York, Washington, Atlanta, Houston and Portland, to prevent a repeat of the violence in Minneapolis.
