Nero caught the biggest breaks in not being found guilty thanks to Officer Garrett Miller claiming responsibility in detaining Gray.
Prosecutors claimed that Nero assaulted Gray by detaining him without justification. But Miller testified under limited immunity that he alone detained and handcuffed Gray, that he was the one who walked Gray to the wall while Nero retrieved officer Miller’s bike. The only time Nero touched Gray at the arrest site was when Gray asked for his inhaler, Miller testified. (CNN)
