Freddie Gray Had A Long Rap Sheet

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.”

Heavy.com posted Gray’s complete rap sheet on Monday and it includes several charges — primarily for offenses relating to drug distribution.

The Washington Post reported on Friday that Gray had a lengthy criminal history and even had a two-year stint in prison. According to The Post, his charges were primarily for selling heroin and marijuana. However, only a few of the counts he was charged with resulted in convictions.

Before he died, Gray had two pending drug charges against him — one of which was a felony count for dealing heroin. In 2014, he was arrested on suspicion of serving as a lookout for a heroin dealer and the charges stemming from it could have sent him to prison for a long time. He cut a deal with prosecutors and was able to serve his time by doing several hours of community service.

Gray’s many run-ins with the law made him a familiar face for police officers, literally. Gray at the time of his last arrest could be identified by name simply through video surveillance.
