Funeral set for man who died in NYC police custody after being put in apparent chokehold

A funeral is scheduled Wednesday for the 43-year-old New York City man whose death during an arrest has led to accusations of police misconduct.

The viewing for Eric Garner starts at 2 p.m. at Bethel Baptist Church in Brooklyn. The Rev. Al Sharpton will speak at the funeral, which begins at 7 p.m.

Garner died as he was being arrested Thursday on Staten Island.

An amateur video shows a plainclothes police officer placing Garner in what appears be a chokehold. Garner can be heard gasping, "I can't breathe!"

One officer has been stripped of his gun and badge pending an investigation and another has been placed on desk duty. Two paramedics and two EMTs have been placed on modified duty.

No cameras will be allowed at Garner's funeral.
