The man who filmed Eric Garner’s death is wanted for an alleged domestic violence case involving his wife.
According to the New York Daily News, police want to question Ramsey Orta on allegations that he threatened his wife over the weekend. Orta is currently fighting drug dealing and weapon possession cases in Staten Island.
The alleged incident took place in the Baruch Houses on the Lower East Side around 10 a.m. Saturday.
“Don’t you know I don’t give a f—, b—-! I’ll kill your a–. You’ll be lucky if you leave this room,” the woman accused Orta, 24, of saying, sources said.
On Tuesday, Orta was met by dozens of supporters at the Staten Island Courthouse. Garner’s daughter, Erica, was also present.
The New York Daily News reports:
“What’s going on here makes me confident,” Orta said. “I wake up every day and know that there are people out there to get me, and there’s also people out there supporting me. So it kind of weighs out the balance.”
In the courthouse, police stopped Garner’s daughter, Erica, 25, and demanded she remove pictures from her phone that were taken during the hearing, which is against courthouse rules. Garner became irate.
“All these damn officers for what?” she asked. “Pictures? They want to kill me, too? For what?”
Since it was discovered he was the individual who filmed NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo placing Garner into an illegal chokehold, Orta claims the police have followed and harassed him.
Police have not yet been in contact with Orta about the alleged domestic case.
