Freddie Gray Officer Accused of Threatening to Kill Ex-Girlfriend

The Baltimore police lieutenant charged with the manslaughter of Freddie Gray was accused of threatening to kill an ex-girlfriend several years before allegedly abusing his position to harass another former partner and her family. Brian Rice is alleged to have grabbed the woman as she attempted to collect her possessions from the home they had shared and told her that if she ever returned “he would kill me”, she said, when requesting a restraining order in 2008. The complaint also stated that Rice kept several guns at the house, including an AK-47 assault rifle. The 41-year-old Rice would later be accused of threatening to kill the husband of another ex-girlfriend, having that man wrongfully arrested, and warning that he was preparing to kill himself, as part of an intense dispute that saw him twice disciplined by chiefs and stripped of his guns.
