Umm, Why Is This A Story?

From the NY Daily News: Residents at Brooklyn’s Pink Houses accused cops of using a banned chokehold Monday on a drug possession suspect who appeared to be having a seizure.
A large crowd gathered at Stanley Ave. and Crescent St. shortly after 2:30 p.m. after a man who was stopped by cops began trembling in a housing complex courtyard.
Video of the chaotic scene shows a man on the ground and onlookers berating cops about their response.
“Why do you put somebody in a seizure in handcuffs?” a bystander asks a group of cops.
“Yeah, but they choked him,” says another woman who is being ushered away by a police officer.
An NYPD spokesman said there was no chokehold and no seizure. Officials said cops were responding to a call about a man with a firearm when a man started running and threw himself on the ground before faking a seizure.
Cops called an ambulance just to be safe, officials said, adding there was nothing medically wrong with the suspect.
