The other person being transported in the van that carried Freddie Gray is denying a report that Gray injure himself in the van.

“I am Donta Allen. I am the one who was in the van with Freddie Gray,” he said. “All I did was go straight to the station, but I heard a little banging like he was banging his head.”

“They trying to make it seem like I told them that, I made it like Freddie Gray did that to himself,” Allen said. “Why the fuck would he do that to himself?”

Allen had been arrested for stealing cigarettes and was never charged, WJZ reports.

“I had two options today right, either come and talk to y’all and get my credibility straight with y’all and not get killed,” Allen said, “or not tell a true story.”

“The only reason I’m doing this is because they put my name in a bad state.”

    It’s a crime to steal cigarettes? Should be a crime to sell those death sticks. He wasn’t charged, so I suppose he didn’t steal cigarettes.
