Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts released more information that has been found in the Freddie Gray case to the public today.  According to the Washington Post

A prisoner sharing a police transport van with Freddie Gray told investigators that he could hear Gray “banging against the walls” of the vehicle and believed that he “was intentionally trying to injure himself,” according to a police document obtained by The Washington Post.

The prisoner, who is currently in jail, was separated from Gray by a metal partition and could not see him. His statement is contained in an application for a search warrant, which is sealed by the court. The Post was given the document under the condition that the prisoner not be named because the person who provided it feared for the inmate’s safety.

It was also reviled that the police van made stops on the way to booking Gray.  Police made the discovery  from private camera footage.

The van driver stopped three times while transporting Gray to a booking center, the first to put him in leg irons. Batts said the officer driving the van described Gray as “irate.” The search warrant application says Gray “continued to be combative in the police wagon.”

On April 12, 2015, Gray was apprehended by police at 8:40 a.m. According to a Baltimore Police timeline, at 8:54 a.m. Gray was put in additional restrains inside the van. And at 9:24 a.m., an ambulance was called to the Western District police station to take him to the hospital
