Lt. Rice and Police Officers Nero and Miller are on bike patrol near the corner of North Avenue and Mount Street, Baltimore. Lieutenant Rice makes eye contact with Gray, who runs away. Less than a minute later Gray surrenders to Miller and Nero in the 1700 block of Presbury Street. The officers handcuff Gray and places him face down. Gray requests an inhaler, and says he cannot breathe, but does not receive one. Miller and Nero put Gray in a seated position and find a folding knife, and charge him with illegal possession of a switchblade knife. The officers then place Gray down on his stomach and restrain him until the police van arrived. Miller’s report:
