Baltimore Officer who Arrested Freddie Gray was Hospitalized in 2012 for Mental Health Concerns

May 01, 2015  | 

The top Baltimore city police officer suspended following Freddie Gray's death was hospitalized in April 2012 following concerns about his mental health, according to records from a sheriff's department and court obtained by The Associated Press.

Worries about the lieutenant — originally raised by a fellow Baltimore police officer who is the mother of his child — led Carroll County, Md., deputies to confiscate his guns and contact high-ranking police officials, the report says.

The lieutenant, who initially pursued Gray on a Baltimore street when Gray fled after the lieutenant made eye contact April 12, declared three years ago that he "could not continue to go on like this" and threatened to commit an act that was censored in the public version of a report obtained by the AP from the Carroll County, Maryland, Sheriff's Office. The lieutenant lived in the county, about 35 miles northwest of Baltimore.

In the Freddie Gray case, the lieutenant faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault and misconduct in office.

oh so Grays criminal record is barely talked about and now we are leaking facts (or fiction) from a COPs own personal medical records??? This seems a bit one sided against the cops, oh sorry I was not saying Im surprised...just disgusted. Typical smear tactics and media cop hating. I hope this adds to the fact that this trial will be moved out of that Cop hating, racist Baltimore. Seems everyone is getting the blame for all of Baltimore's ills but the BLACK DEMOCRATIC "leaders" that have run that city for the past 30 years! The same lack of blame that the "leaders" of Detroit, Atlanta and D.C. ever get for their lack of leadership and concern for the average folks, even their own Black communities.
