Convicted murderer Derek Chauvin's first night in prison consisted of a hot and well-balanced dinner. Radar has exclusively learned that after being found guilty of second and third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for George Floyd's death, he chowed down on teriyaki chicken.
Radar obtained the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights' weekly food list and Tuesday's dinner was stir fry inspired. According to the menu, Chauvin's very first meal was strategically measured out and included four ounces of teriyaki chicken, one cup of brown rice, half a cup of broccoli salad, and string beans.
Radar has learned the well-balanced meal also came with two wheat rolls AND margarine. Chauvin also got something sweet -- half a cup of applesauce -- to wash it all down.
So, what's on the menu tonight?
Chauvin will be served up a turkey frank, baked beans, and a bun to make his hotdog. He won't get skipped out on condiments either. According to the doc, each inmate is allowed one mustard packet and three ketchups -- which is probably intended to slather all over the prisoner's choice of potatoes.
We told you first, the 45-year-old ex-cop has been placed on "administrative segregation" during his time at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights facility. A spokesperson for the prison told Radar that Chauvin is in a single cell and "will not have contact with other incarcerated people."
Administrative segregation is only used when someone’s presence in the general population is considered a "safety concern."
Radar has also learned that while Chauvin will be eating in his single cell alone, he can opt to eat off an alternative menu if he decides to go vegetarian.
He will remain locked up at the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Oak Park Heights facility for the next 8 weeks until a judge hands over his sentencing. The prison spokesperson says at this time, it is "undetermined" if and when Chauvin will get off "administrative segregation."
George Floyd died on May 25, 2020, in Minneapolis, MN after reportedly presenting a counterfeit bill at a store. Four officers responded and Chauvin put his knee on Floyd's neck for over 9 minutes while George laid on the ground repeatedly saying, "I can't breathe," according to video evidence.
He was just 46 years old.
