Washington-based federal prosecutors plan to aggressively pursue charges against NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo for the 2014 death of Eric Garner during an arrest on Staten Island, a law enforcement source told The New York Post on Tuesday.

“It’s going to happen sooner than later,” the source said of an indictment. “Washington wants to indict him.”

Federal investigators in Brooklyn were replaced by DC counterparts because of their reluctance to bring charges, the source said.
