Floyd’s roommate says he was a good man who would never use fake cash, take drugs and barely drank alcohol

"If that  bill was a counterfeit, George didn

George Floyd’s roommate has said that the $20 bill that instigated his arrest and his death may not have been a fake. He added that if it was, Floyd would have never intentionally used counterfeit cash.

Floyd’s roommate of four years, Alvin Manago, 55, told in an exclusive interview that Floyd was a stand-up guy and if he did use a counterfeit bill at the store before his death, it was “unintentional”.  

He said: “I’ve never known Floyd to use any counterfeit money. If he tried to pass along a counterfeit $20 bill it was unintentional. He probably didn’t know the money was fake. 

“I’m just not sure why the store employees didn’t just tell him it was a fake $20. They all knew him then. He was a regular customer.”

Manago met George Floyd, 46, when they worked together at the Conga Bistro Bar and Grill. Floyd worked security and Manago worked as a bar back. Manago says they had been roommates for almost four years and considers him one of his best friends.
