After arriving at the Central District for processing, Winston was taken to University of Maryland Medical Center where the officers were asked to leave by the charge nurse, according to Gordon. Winston's mother, Renee Winston, said that her son's nurse sent a letter to Gordon outlining what she felt was abuse by police. "The nurse said in the letter that they were calling him names and making references to Freddie Gray," she said at a small Feb. 24 protest for her son held in front of Central Booking. "She insisted that he be uncuffed unless he was being arrested, which at the time he wasn't. I'm very worried for his condition now."
