Bohdan Vechirko

American of Ukrainian origin Bohdan Vechirko, the man who drove the gas tank truck that ran over a crowd of protesters near Minneapolis now walks free. He was released from custody without any charges placed against him, Voice of America reported.

"Bohdan Vechirko has been released from custody on Thursday, without any charges imposed. However, the law enforcers state that the investigation carries on", reads the article.

35-year-old American of Ukrainian origin was arrested as a suspect in an assault.

There's a regulation, according to which, a suspect must be released from custody within 36 hours unless law enforcers press official charges. In Vechirko's case, this period was over, so the man was set free. Attorneys still can charge Vechirko later if they find enough proof of his guilt.

As is known, the U.S. citizen of Ukrainian origin Bohdan Vechirko was detained after his gas tank truck drove into a crowd of manifestants who protested against the police brutality.
On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man suspected of passing a counterfeit $20 bill, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota after Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, pressed his knee to Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed face down in the street. During the final three minutes Floyd was motionless and had no pulse, but officers made no attempt to revive him. Chauvin kept his knee on Floyd's neck even as arriving emergency medical technicians attempted to treat him. The infamous case sparked a huge wave of civil unrest in different locations across the United States.
