BALTIMORE (AP) — A protester arrested amid demonstrations in downtown Baltimore during a pretrial hearing in the Freddie Gray case has been released.

Online court records show that 21-year-old Darius Kwame Rosebrough of Baltimore was released Thursday, a day after his arrest.

Rosebrough is better known as Kwame Rose, an activist who gained attention when he confronted Fox News journalist Geraldo Rivera about coverage of demonstrations after Gray's death.

Online court records show Rosebrough is charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and resisting or interfering with an arrest. Video of the arrest shows him saying he was hit by a car and needs a medic. Police say he wasn't hit by a car or shocked, but an officer pulled a stun gun on him.

Police say Rosebrough kicked an officer in the face.
