The administrative judge presiding over the disciplinary trial NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo following the 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner said the officer was 'untruthful' about his role in how Garner ended up dead that day

The administrative judge presiding over the disciplinary trial of the cop who choked Eric Garner to death in 2014 said the officer was 'untruthful' about his role in how Garner ended up dead that day.

Internal affairs investigators interviewed Officer Daniel Pantaleo on December 8, 2014. The transcript of that interview was introduced during his disciplinary trial in place of Pantaleo's direct testimony.

During their questioning, the investigators asked Pantaleo to describe the chokehold maneuver banned by the NYPD in 1993 due to its lethal risks. Pantaleo defined the action as a move where 'you use your forearm, grasped with the other hand, and you pull back with your forearm onto the windpipe, preventing him from breathing.'

In truth, Pantaleo's definition of a chokehold was more stringent than the NYPD's.

But after being forced to watch the now-infamous video of himself wrapping his forearm around Garner's neck before grasping one hand with the other and pulling back onto the man's windpipe, Pantaleo maintained that he didn't choke the Staten Island father of six even though the officer's actions appeared to match his own incorrect description beat for beat.
