Two Baltimore police officers have agreed to be disciplined for their roles in the arrest of Freddie Gray, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Garrett Miller and Edward Nero do not believe they violated any policies of the Baltimore Police Department. However, they accepted the disciplinary action so they could continue their careers, said Michael Davey, an attorney for the police union.

Neither Davey nor a police spokesman would say how the two would be disciplined, the AP said.

The officers were among six criminally charged in Gray’s arrest and death in 2015.

Gray died in April 2015 after suffering a neck injury while in police custody -- his death spurring massive protests and riots in Baltimore.

Three officers still face disciplinary hearings, which are to begin at the end of the month, the AP reported. Those officers face a recommendation of termination.
