Wife Of Ramsey Orta Arrested For Assault Of Woman Outside Grocery
The spouse of the man who recorded the shocking video of cops putting a Staten Island man in a deadly chokehold has been arrested, authorities said.
Chrissie Ortiz, 30, the wife of Ramsey Orta, was taken into custody and charged with assault in the third degree after she allegedly wailed on a 35-year-old woman outside a Tompkinsville grocery on Tuesday afternoon.
The two women were arguing at 5:30 p.m. when Ortiz allegedly attacked her victim, leaving her with a few bruises.
It was not immediately revealed what the two women were fighting about.
Cops hauled Ortiz to the 120th Precinct, where they gave her a Desk Appearance Ticket and sent her home.
Three days earlier, Orta, 22, was arrested on gun possession charges after he was allegedly seen trying to hand off a stolen gun as he exited a Staten Island hotel late Saturday night, authorities said.
Ramsey’s mother and wife say NYPD has been following him ever since the video went viral.
Oh, NOW the NYPD wants to “serve and protect”. GTFOHWTBS.
