IT DOESN'T STOP: Now the Wife of the Man who Videotaped Eric Garner Chokehold Has Ben Arrested

Chrissie Ortiz
Very curious.

SIlive reports:
 Chrissie Ortiz, 30, the wife of the man who videotaped police performing what appeared to be a fatal chokehold on Eric Garner, was arrested on assault charges, an NYPD spokesman said.

Ms. Ortiz was arrested at 5:30 p.m.  on Tuesday in front of 206 Bay St. in a dispute with a female, the spokesman said.

She was arrested a short distance from 202 Bay St. where police attempted to take Garner, 43, of Port Richmond, into custody by using what appeared to be a banned chokehold that precipitated his death July 17.

Ms. Ortiz is accused of assaulting another woman. She was taken to the 120th Precinct and has been released on a desk appearance ticket, the spokesman said.

  1. This is apart of the states process in discrediting those who catch it violating people's rights. Trump up some ridiculous gun charge on the one who filmed the incident and now go after a loved one to get the one who filmed to intimidate him even more.
