VIDEO: Man Charged with Choking Florida Officer During Arrest

A Hollywood, Fla., man is facing a battery of charges after he allegedly assaulted and choked an officer unconscious at a Hallandale gas station early Tuesday morning.

The incident started when the officer saw Livingston Manners, 37, run a stop sign and eventually was able to pull the car over at a gas station, reports NBC 6. The officer said as soon as he approached the car, Manners started shouting at him and got out of his car.

The officer said he told Manners to stay in his car and when he didn’t, tried to put him in handcuffs. Manners allegedly began to punch the officer and the officer was able to get him on the ground and get on top of him. The officer said Manners "locked his legs around my body preventing my escape" and after hitting him more, "utilized his hands and forcefully grabbed my throat and strangled me."

The police report said the officer "was unable to breath and momentarily lost consciousness as a result of strangulation."

When backup officers arrived, one hit Manners with a Taser and he continued fighting. The officer who was assaulted also hit Manners with a Taser and at this point all of the officers were able to put the suspect in handcuffs.

Manners faces a litany of charges including attempted murder, resisting an officer with violence, resisting an officer without violence, public order crimes, and running a stop sign.
