Milwaukee Cops Apologize for Arresting, Tasing NBA Player Sterling Brown

The Milwaukee Police Department apologized on Wednesday for arresting and tasing Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown. The department said officers “acted inappropriately” and were disciplined. Brown was arrested outside a Walgreens store in January after being suspected of committing a parking violation. “What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by unlawful use of physical force, including being handcuffed and tased and then unlawfully booked,” Brown said in a statement. Police body cam footage showed officers telling Brown to take his hands out of his pockets, and then using a taser on Brown. He was never charged with a crime.
