    The wife of Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed Eric Garner’s fatal encounter with NYPD has been arrested. This comes just a few days after her husband was arrested in an unrelated incident for which she insists he was “set up.” The Staten Island Advance reports:

    Chrissie Ortiz, 30, the wife of the man who videotaped police performing what appeared to be a fatal chokehold on Eric Garner, was arrested on assault charges, an NYPD spokesman said.

    Ms. Ortiz was arrested at 5:30 p.m.  on Tuesday in front of 206 Bay St. in a dispute with a female, the spokesman said.

    She was arrested a short distance from 202 Bay St. where police attempted to take Garner, 43, of Port Richmond, into custody by using what appeared to be a banned chokehold that precipitated his death July 17.

    Ms. Ortiz is accused of assaulting another woman. She was taken to the 120th Precinct and has been released on a desk appearance ticket, the spokesman said.
