BREAKING! Jury hung on all four charges; Judge declares mistrial in trial of Officer William Porter. (Prepare for riots)
Wednesday declared a mistrial in the trial of Officer William G. Porter on all four counts.
Porter, 26, was charged with involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in the April arrest and death of Freddie Gray.
Gray, 25, suffered a broken neck and severe spinal cord injury in the back of a police transport van after his arrest on April 12. His death a week later prompted widespread protests against police brutality, and his funeral was followed by the most intense rioting and looting in the city since the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.
