NYPD cops use illegal chokehold on suspected subway farebeater (VIDEO)
New York City police officers are under investigation for using a chokehold, a move banned under NYPD rules, on a man accused of skipping subway fare. The incident occurred three days before Eric Garner died during a similar arrest.
Videos posted online show two New York Police Department officers wrangling with Ronald Johns, 22, on July 14 while using the banned technique. The officers are also seen punching Johns in the face. Pepper spray was also used in the “struggle” to subdue him, officers said according to court papers.
