A New York grand jury indicted former marine Daniel Penny on Wednesday after he placed fellow New York City subway rider Jordan Neely in a deadly chokehold in May, sources said.

The incident had spurred protests after a video surfaced of Neely, a well-known performer on the streets of New York, in his last moments on the subway floor. Neely, who was Black, had a history of mental illness.

Penny has maintained his innocence and said he was trying to protect other passengers from what he said was Neely’s erratic behavior.
