EXCLUSIVE: Justice Department presents evidence to grand jury in police choking death of Eric Garner to determine if Staten Island man's civil rights were violated

Federal prosecutors have begun presenting evidence to a grand jury in the police choking death of Eric Garner to determine if there were violations of the victim's civil rights, the Daily News has learned.

The prosecution team is comprised of Forrest Christian, a veteran prosecutor in the Justice Department's civil rights division, along with Taryn Merkl and Nicole Argentieri from the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office, who both have extensive experience in organized crime cases.

Sources said two cops who were present during the violent takedown of Garner by Officer Daniel Pantaleo were called before the grand jury Wednesday.

“They were on the periphery” of the incident, a source said.
