Baltimore Board Approves “Rough Ride” Settlement

Baltimore City is signing off on a settlement for a woman who claims she was given a “rough ride” in a police van. The Board of Estimates voted this morning for a 95-thousand-dollar payout to Christine Abbott. She says police drove “maniacally” following her 2012 arrest, slamming her against the van’s walls. City officials say the settlement is related to her treatment during the arrest and does not mention specifically her time in the van. Some believe that a “rough ride” from police led to the spinal injuries that killed Freddie Gray after his April arrest.
