ST. LOUIS (The Huffington Post) — Kevin Moore, the man who filmed Freddie Gray’s violent arrest, was detained in Baltimore on Thursday night, along with Chad Jackson and Tony White, two activists who had previously filmed protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

On April 12, Moore released video of Gray’s arrest to multiple media outlets immediately after filming it on his cell phone. Moore told the Baltimore Sun that Gray was “folded like origami” by police officers during the arrest.

Jackson and White are affiliated with WeCopwatch, an organization that focuses on police accountability. They had traveled to Baltimore to help train activists to film police officers.

Jacob Crawford, a representative for WeCopwatch, told The Huffington Post over the phone that Moore has since been released with no charges. He added that Jackson and White remain in jail, and said Smith was allegedly injured by police officers during the encounter.
