Judge Will Not Throw Out Murder Charge Faced By Freddie Gray Van Driver

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — There were clashes in the courtroom Thursday in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson Junior. The defense began presenting its case after the judge refused to throw out the charges.

Goodson is facing the most serious charges in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray.

The defense may have lost the motion to acquit, but they started their case with a bang — a witness who had a showdown with prosecutors. They ended with a huge wildcard witness.

A clash in the courtroom exposed simmering tensions in the Freddie Gray investigation, as prosecutors accused the lead police detective of sabotaging their case.
