LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – As the nation continues to protest police brutality following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, a New Mexico police officer is being brought up on manslaughter charges, for putting a suspect in a deadly chokehold.

Police lapel video shows how a traffic stop took an unexpected turn for three Las Cruces police officers, one of them was now-former officer Christoper Smelser. It started when police pulled over a blue pickup one early morning back in February, following reports of a burglar near Three Crosses and Alameda.
