[DailyNews] NYPD cop admits charging Eric Garner with a felony after his death was a "total mistake"

One of the officers who wrestled Eric Garner to the ground during his fatal 2014 arrest testified Tuesday to falsely charging the Staten Island dad with a felony after riding with his lifeless body in an ambulance.

NYPD officer Justin D’Amico also claimed he never heard Garner utter his infamous pleas: “I can’t breathe.”

The testimony came on the second day of a judicial inquiry into the circumstances of Garner’s fatal arrest on July 17, 2014, and how officials responded to it.
