An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an
NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a
chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her
NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since
1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm
around 27-year-old Rosan Miller’s neck in the Saturday incident.
Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest
unfold. The NYPD told MailOnline that it is currently investigating
Miller’s husband Moses, 34, and brother John Miller were also
arrested in the incident.
Moses Miller was allegedly charged with resisting arrest and
obstruction while John Miller was charged with harassment and
obstruction of justice.
Rosan was given a summons for disorderly conduct. When former city councilman Charles Barron heard about the incident, he called the police department to complain and expedite the Miller family’s release.
‘This was all over a grill,’ Barron told the New York Daily News .
‘This is about grilling in front of her house.’
