Scott Greer, Daily Caller, April 28, 2015

Freddie Gray, the deceased man at the center of the unrest in Baltimore, had numerous run-ins with the law prior to his fatal detainment in April–with offenses ranging from felony drug possession to assault.

The 25-year-old’s criminal history starts in July 2007 with an arrest for “possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute” and “unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance.” A month later, he was charged with three separate counts of drug possession, a count of violating probation, and making a “false statement to a peace officer.”
