A 19-year-old boy may be in trouble with the law - for choking out his twerking girlfriend while on Instagram Live.

Here is the graphic video of the alleged strangulation

The teenager, who is from Dallas, TX, decided to create a video for his friends on social media. He had a female friend twerking on him, while he grabbed her by the throat and squeezed.

But the teen went overboard, and he squeezed her throat so tight, that she lost consciousness. The teen claimed on IG Live that it was all an accident - but the viewers weren't so sure, and they contacted the Dallas police department regarding the incident.

MTO News has learned that one of the social media snitches was told by the Dallas police, that they would be "investigating" the incident.

It's not clear what charges if any, the 19-year-old could face. But in 2009, the Texas Legislature passed a new law making Family Violence Strangulation or Suffocation a felony punishable as a third-degree felony punishable by 2 to 10 years for the first offense or as a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years for subsequent convictions.
