NEW YORK - The complaint history of the NYPD officer fired in connection with the chokehold death of Eric Garner has now been released.
Records shared by the Civilian Complaint Review Board show former NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo had seven misconduct complaints against him before the 2014 incident on Staten Island.
In one case, Pantaleo was docked two vacation days as punishment for a stop and frisk incident in June 2012.
He was also ordered to receive additional training after a vehicle search in December 2011.
The information was revealed in a request after the state repealed the law known as 50-a.
The repeal of that law makes police disciplinary files public.
