NYC medical examiner testifies that NYPD Officer Pantaleo used a ‘chokehold’ on Eric Garner

A long-delayed disciplinary trial is set to begin Monday for Pantaleo, accused of using a banned chokehold in the July 2014 death of Eric Garner.

The pathologist who performed an autopsy on Eric Garner testified Wednesday that the banned chokehold performed by Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo sparked a “lethal sequence of events” that led to his death.

Dr. Floriana Persechino said the maneuver sparked an asthma attack, that led to Garner not being able to breathe as he was arrested on Staten Island on July 17, 2014.

After reviewing the video, first released by the Daily News, Persechinio testified at Pantaleo’s NYPD trial in Police Headquarters that the officer clearly has Garner in a chokehold as he took the larger man down to the ground face first.

“That maneuver is a chokehold,” said Persechino, who has performed upwards of 4,000 autopsies and has been trained on how to check for signs to see if a chokehold played a role in someone’s death.
