RACINE COUNTY — The release of a video on Wednesday of an incident between Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown and the Milwaukee Police Department has received nationwide attention and some local candidates have weighed in on the topic.
In January, Brown was approached by police for illegally parking horizontally across several spaces in a Walgreens parking lot in Milwaukee around 2 a.m.
The body camera from one police officer shows several officers around Brown and asking him to take his hands out of his pockets. Shortly after that, Brown was tackled to the ground, and a police officer clearly yells “Taser, Taser,Taser.” A moment after that, Brown is heard groaning while being shot with a stun gun.
During a press conference, MPD Chief Alfonso Morales apologized to Brown and said the officers “acted inappropriately.”
The incident has caused multiple officers to be suspended.
