Three French police officers have been charged with manslaughter after the death of a delivery driver in Paris.

Cedric Chouviat, 42, was stopped by police as he rode his scooter near the Eiffel Tower in January.

Video shows the father-of-five shouting “I’m suffocating” seven times during the arrest, as officers hold him while he is still wearing his helmet.

His body then goes limp.

Mr Chouviat died in hospital two days later, with a coroner ruling he died of asphyxiation and a broken larynx.

Charges were brought against one officer yesterday, a judicial source told AFP, with the other two charged last week.

A fourth police officer is under investigation but has not been charged.
