Looks like in Minnesota you need 10% + enough collateral to back up the entire bail amount.

"It was not immediately clear where Chauvin got the money to pay his bond. In Minnesota, someone who posts bond must pay 10 per cent, in this case $100,000, to the bond company and have collateral, such as a house, to back the full amount."
Police union passed the hat?

They probably have insurance coverage on it, too.

Possibly. The union said they didn't provide any funds, but doesn't mean members didn't raise it on their own.

But that's no reason to spoil the opportunity for a joke

I've seen it in one or two American movies
