NEW YORK (AP) — The man who recorded video of a fatal police chokehold in New York City has been arrested on gun charges, police said Sunday.

Police said Ramsey Orta, 22, was arrested Saturday night on Staten Island, a few blocks from where officers confronted his friend Eric Garner on July 17.

Orta, whose recording of an officer restraining Garner with a chokehold fueled outcry against the police, is charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
