Officer allegedly puts pregnant woman in choke hold

NEW YORK (WFLX) - The New York Police Department is investigating another choke hold incident. This time an officer allegedly put a pregnant woman in a choke hold.

The woman says she was arrested for allegedly refusing to stop barbecuing in front of her Brooklyn home.

This comes after a 43-year-old man died last week.  A New York police officer allegedly placed Eric Garner in a banned choke hold during an arrest attempt for selling untaxed cigarettes.
