Officer in fatal arrest once hospitalized over mental health

BALTIMORE (AP) – Records from the sheriff’s office and court show the highest-ranking Baltimore police officer in the arrest that led to Freddie Gray’s death was hospitalized in April 2012 over mental health concerns for an unknown duration and had his guns confiscated by sheriff’s deputies.

Lt. Brian Rice said he, quote, “could not continue to go on like this” and threatened to commit an act that was censored in the public version of a report from the Carroll County, Maryland, Sheriff’s Office.

Citing “credible information,” deputies confiscated his official and personal guns, called his commanding officer and transported Rice to the Carroll Hospital Center.

Rice wouldn’t discuss the incident. He initially pursued Gray who fled after Rice made eye contact April 12. Gray died a week after his arrest, which sparked rioting.
