Kevin Moore came forward with the video and later his identity to explain what he saw the day of Freddie Gray’s arrest.

From Photography is Not a Crime blog: “The man who recorded one of two videos showing Baltimore cops dragging a screaming Freddie Gray into the back of a police van was arrested Thursday night, two days after voicing concerns that police were trying to intimidate him by plastering his photo all over the news, saying they wanted to interview him.”

Moore is the man who, after Gray's death, released cell phone footage of Gray's arrest. He later told the Baltimore Sun that Baltimore police officers tackled the 25-year-old victim like “a piece of origami.”

The video that Kevin Moore shot on his cell phone shows at least two police officers placing Freddie Gray into the back of a police van. Gray appears to be crying out in pain.
