VIDEO: FL Deputy Choked, Injured After Soccer Game

A New York man injured a deputy Sunday evening when he placed him in a chokehold while thousands of fans were leaving Parramore's Orlando City Stadium, the Orange County (FL) Sheriff's Office said.

Deputy Gustavo Marinoni was helping with crowd control at about 7:30 p.m. after Orlando City Soccer Club's season-opening win against New York FC when fans became combative, Orange County Deputy Rose Silva told WFTV.

Investigators said Felix Vazquez, 27, of the Bronx, NY, wrapped his arm around the deputy's neck and tried to choke him on West Church Street east of South Terry Avenue near the City View apartments.
