Megyn Kelly spoke tonight with a friend of the officers involved in the Freddie Gray case, who describes them as family men. 

In an effort to keep him safe, his identity was disguised and his voice was masked during "The Kelly File" interview. At his request, he wanted to be called "Greg."  

He shared that the driver of the van that Gray was riding in after being arrested is a "genuine, good hearted guy."

"I've known him for quite some time now," Greg said. "He will give you the shirt off his back...It's a little disheartening that he's just being thrown under the bus right now. Somebody needs to speak up for him."

Greg stated that "it's not right" that some of the officers are being thrown under the bus in this case.

Kelly asked Greg if drivers of police vans in Baltimore give suspects a "rough ride" by driving erratically to the point of endangering prisoners.

He said that his friend who drove the van Gray was in is not capable of doing that. 

"He has such a good heart, even with prisoners he's caring," Greg said. "I just don't think it's right how the media has thrown him under the bus."

Greg added that he feels bad for Freddie Gray's family.

"They've been through a lot," he said. "People have destroyed stores and they've rioted the city in his name and that's not what the family wanted to begin with. They just wanted peaceful protests and you have to respect that."

"There's still love in the city," he remarked.
