It appears that policemen’s weapon of choice nowadays is the chokehold, because another member of the NYPD was captured on camera allegedly using this illegal maneuver on a citizen, according to the New York Daily News.

This time, the victim was a seven-month pregnant woman named Rosan Miller. In photos released by a local advocacy group, the 27-year-old is shown struggling with a cop whose arm is around her neck.

The scuffle occurred when officers went to her home over the weekend because she was grilling on a public sidewalk. The encounter ended with Miller, her brother and husband all in handcuffs.

Her brother, John Miller, was charged with harassment and obstruction of justice; her husband, Moses Miller, was charged with resisting arrest and obstruction; and Rosan Miller was summoned for disorderly conduct.

This incident comes just a couple of weeks after 43-year-old Eric Garner was killed when a New York policeman put him in an chokehold. The tussle was also caught on tape, and the case is currently under investigation.
