Now, nearly three months after Chauvin learned his fate, Yelle says he can only recall his former client expressing something akin to remorse a single time. “I said, ‘Is there anything I can do for you?’ And he said, ‘You can take me back a year,’ ” Yelle told “Inside Edition.” 

He described the disgraced ex-law enforcement member as being shy. “He is a real process oriented, regimented individual,” said Yelle. Though he won’t boast of who he has protected throughout his career, he said the list includes very notable people; Chauvin is simply the one he has opened up about protecting.

“He was very, very methodical in everything he did,” he continued when discussing who he observed Chauvin to be. “It just always has to be the same way without fail, no exception.”

For 44 days Yelle

Veteran security expert Scott Yelle has broken his silence when it comes to detailing the measures he took to keep convicted murderer Derek Chauvin alive during his very public trial for charges related to the death of George Floyd. 

Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, was found guilty of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for kneeling on Floyd’s neck during a May 2020 arrest that ultimately led to the Black man’s death. This past June, the former cop of two decades was sentenced to 22.5 years in a maximum security prison.

For 44 days Yelle managed the logistics of transportation, security details and the handling of daily death threats. His concerns included outraged protesters attempting to cause the death of Chauvin, and the constant threat of a barrage of violent acts such as protesters throwing rocks, bricks and Molotov cocktails. 

“This was some agitator’s Super Bowl,” he said. He added that during the trial Chauvin was not kept in police custody, but instead for his own safety was transported across state lines to Wisconsin and housed in an unsuspecting suburban neighborhood. There, Chauvin was given a disguise and allowed to go outside and shop while flanked by security on all sides.
