Just hours after Baltimore jurors began deliberations in the first murder trial of Keith Davis Jr., Andrea Mason, the prosecutor in the case, was questioned at the scene of a multiple-vehicle crash in Towson that police say she caused that night.
As the arresting officer attempts to ask her about the crash, she tells him, “this is why people hate police.”
The exchange was one of several between Baltimore County police officers and Mason during her drunken driving arrest on May 12, 2017, which was captured on the officers’ body-worn cameras. The Baltimore Sun obtained the footage Thursday through a Maryland Public Information Act request.
On Wednesday, a Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office spokeswoman said Mason was no longer with the office, but declined to provide additional details, calling it a personnel matter. An attorney for Mason said Wednesday his client was fired after media inquiries about her arrest, but that his client had previously disclosed the arrest to the state’s attorney’s office.
