The teen "expressed regret for his behavior," Ahlers said.

He said Gladden has a right to a bail hearing, but at this point, he said he and fellow attorney George Psoras Jr. don't have enough information.

"There's no reason to rush this," Ahlers said of the bail hearing, adding that his lawyers want what's best for Gladden and the community.

Suspects normally have a bail hearing within 24 hours of their arrest, but Gladden's bail hearing had been delayed while he remained at Spring Grove State Hospital. He is now being held at the Baltimore County detention center.

Ahlers said the Gladden family continues to keep their thoughts and prayers with Borowy's family for his full recovery. Several family members attended the hearing.
