BALTIMORE: Fallout After Body Cam Appears to Show An Officer Possibly Planting Drugs as Evidence

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — Fallout begins in Circuit Court as a result of footage recorded on an officer’s body cam that even the Police Commissioner Kevin Davis described as appearing to show an officer possibly planting evidence.

In Circuit Court prosecutors began to drop charges in some cases in which the officers made arrests. Postponements were requested in a few cases as well.

The fallout began less than 12 hours after Fox45 aired the initial footage. Natalie Finegar who’s an attorney with the Public Defender’s Office says, “It’s my understanding with one of the officers involved in the video footage there are 53 open cases.”
