The NYPD officer involved in the arrest of Eric Garner, the asthmatic 43-year-old father of six who died after being placed in a chokehold, has been stripped of his gun and badge.

The Associated Press reports that Officer Daniel Pantaleo, an eight-year NYPD officer, has been placed on desk duty after being stripped of his gun and badge. Another officer named Justin Damico, reports the Daily News, was also taken off the street and placed on desk duty, but will retain his gun and badge. He has been with the NYPD for four years.

Federal court records show that in the last two years, three Staten Island men have sued Pantaleo over what they argued were racially motivated arrests.
