This story escaped my attention last week, but was mentioned in the Small Victories newsletter:

“The officer, David Afanador, had been suspended on Sunday hours after cellphone video was posted on social media that showed him holding his arm around the man’s neck during an arrest on the Rockaway Beach boardwalk. The man, Ricky Bellevue, 35, appeared to lose consciousness.

“On Thursday, Officer Afanador, 39, was charged under the new law with attempted aggravated strangulation, as well as strangulation in the second degree.”
