A man who has reportedly said he is the uncle of Jordan Neely evaded police before later being apprehended on Monday for a string of larcenies in Manhattan.
Charges filed by police include criminal possession of stolen property, resisting arrest, bail jumping, and unlawful possession of a weapon, per The Daily Mail.
Much like his nephew, Jordan Neely, the 44-year-old Christopher Neely has a lengthy rap sheet, with over 70 previous arrests on his record.
Upon catching up with and detaining Neely, responding officers discovered numerous credit and debit cards with different names, including at least one that was apparently stolen from another person. He was also armed with a gravity knife, according to the report.
Christopher Neely very recently argued that Daniel Penny, the man who put Jordan Neely in a chokehold prior to his death, should be charged for his actions and does not deserve a plea deal.
In a clip that has since gone viral, Penny can be seen subduing Neely while being assisted by two other individuals after the vagrant had allegedly yelled and threatened to harm passengers on the subway.
“He needs to be prosecuted or he will do it again,” Christopher Neely told The New York Post on Sunday. “It’s a smack in the face for Jordan’s family and the people of New York.”
Christopher expressed that he would like for the case to "go to trial," adding, “He has too much confidence in himself and has to be taught what he did was wrong.”
Rev. Al Sharpton, who has been called a race hustler on numerous occasions, attended a funeral held for Jordan Neely, during which he proclaimed to a crowd of hundreds of attendees, “when they choked Jordan, they put their arms around all of us.”
He pulled no punches on Penny, asking the attending audience, “Who thought it was alright for this man to choke a brother to death and go home to see his family?”
He also appeared to decry Penny being let out of jail; he was released after posting $100,000 bail.
Penny has maintained that he is not a vigilante, but just a "normal guy."
"I mean, it's, it's a little bit comical. Everybody who's ever met me can tell you, I love all people, I love all cultures," Penny said to the Post.
"You can tell by my past and all my travels and adventures around the world. I was actually planning a road trip through Africa before this happened."
