Another Black man's encounter with the police; as reported by the NYP:


The fracas involving several officers and suspect Romaine Francis began after he approached the cops “in an aggressive manner” around 10:30 p.m. Sunday night at the corner of Prospect Avenue and East 149th Street, according to a police spokesperson.


The officers had been conducting an investigation when the “uninvolved” 29-year-old man confronted them, police said.


Officers at the scene asked Francis to back away “multiple times,” before they tried to take him into custody, police said. A physical altercation then erupted, according to video of the incident shared on social media.


Police said that during the struggle, Francis “placed his hands around a sergeant’s neck and choked her.”
