Detainee Who Was in Van with Freddie Gray: “He Can’t Hurt Himself Back in no Paddy Wagon…”

Donta Allen, the man who was in custody with Freddie Gray in the back of the police van, spoke with WBAL TV yesterday to clarify his side of the story. His account of what happened in the van definitely doesn’t support the BPD officers’. At the station, he says he overheard a conversation the officers were having in which one of them said, “We gave him [Gray] a run for his money.” He goes on to note that all he heard in the van was “a little banging” for approximately four seconds, which he later on took to mean that Gray’s body was “wobbling” in the back “because he was dying.” Other than that, he says it was a “smooth ride to the police station.” He insisted that there is no way he could have hurt himself in the back of the paddy wagon, so whatever injuries he had sustained happened to him before he was put in there.

Rapper From Iowa Arrested For Flashing Fake Guns & Baking Soda In His Music Video

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The music video is on You Tube. It’s called “Gutta Town.” It shows a guy calling himself “Gutta Man” rapping from locations all over the city of Dubuque with a few other people. In some shots, they’re holding guns, and what looks like drugs. The lead singer, 23-year old David Rhone was arrested today by U.S. Marshals. The Marshals say he violated the terms of his release from a previous arrest. But Rhone’s mother says it’s all just a big misunderstanding. “The guns are not real,” said Stacey Rhone. “The drugs are not real, its television, he made a rap video. When a person turns on the television, they’re looking for a rap video, he gave them what they’re looking for.” Rhone is currently serving a three year probation. Police wouldn’t say if the other men in the music video would be arrested because of an on-going investigation. ” – 2 News
