Statement from the State's Attorney's office on receiving Baltimore Police investigation
The State’s Attorney’s Office has in fact received the hardcopies of the Baltimore Police Department’s investigative file; however, the results of their investigation is not new to us. We have been briefed regularly throughout their process while simultaneously conducting our own independent investigation into the death of Freddie Gray. While we have and will continue to leverage the information received by the Department, we are not relying solely on their findings but rather the facts that we have gathered and verified. We ask for the public to remain patient and peaceful and to trust the process of the justice system.
Insurance commissioner temporarily lifts time restrictions on prescription refills in Baltimore
Release: In light of Gov. Larry Hogan’s emergency declaration following unrest in Baltimore City, Insurance Commissioner Al Redmer, Jr. today temporarily lifted insurance restrictions on when prescription medications can be refilled at pharmacies within city limits. Several pharmacies have been looted or burned, leaving parts of the city without access to their prescriptions.
Under the regulation, time restrictions on prescription medications refills are waived, and payments to pharmacies are authorized for at least a 30-day supply of any prescription medication, regardless of the date of the last refill.
The emergency regulation only applies to those health insurance plans regulated by the Maryland Insurance Administration. Federal plans such as Medicare and Tricare, as well as self-insured employee plans and Medicaid, are not affected by this emergency action. The regulation will remain in place for the duration of the State of Emergency.
Police with updated numbers: 98 officers reported injuries, 43 required some sort of emergency treatment at a hospital. 13 are unable to come in to work.
Police: Released 106 people from custody. They'll continue to pull video footage to look for others involved in riots.
Curfew is still in effect and will be enforced. 9 adults and 2 juveniles arrested last night for curfew violations, police say.
Police: 201 arrests initially. 106 were released without criminal charges against them. The remaining 95 were or will be charged.
