  • Bucks Player Plans to Sue Police Following Release of Tazing Video

Police chief Alfonso Morales said some officers had been disciplined over the incident as the force released body-camera footage which showed how an interaction over an illegally parked auto rapidly escalated.

"What I was not prepared for in the Sterling Brown video was how quickly the officer chose to escalate the situation, compared to the calm way in which Mr".

The Milwaukee Police Department and local officials have acknowledged the challenges they are working to address, and we urge them to enact higher standards and more direct accountability.

Police previously said that the Milwaukee Bucks rookie was tased and arrested on January 26 after he became confrontational over an alleged parking violation in a drug store parking lot.

The police chief vowed to improve police-community relations, citing the video's release and the disciplinary actions as part of those efforts, he said.

The incident occurred on January 26 in the parking lot of a Walgreens at approximately 2 a.m.

As a sergeant who arrived interviewed Brown, he "physically resisted officers attempts to handcuff him and he was taken to the ground in a controlled manner", the arresting officer wrote in the report.

"Back up! Back up!" the officer yells. "For what? I ain't did nothing", Brown responds. The officer called for supervisors, who appeared to escalate the situation. Within a minute, the officer calls for an extra squad auto, while admonishing Brown.

There are no easy solutions to this problem, but there are strides that can be made to create change. "I've got stuff in my hands". "Really?" Brown responds in disbelief.

In the footage, one officer can be heard ridiculing Brown after learning he plays for the Bucks.

"I get mad every time I watch it, you know, because I was defenseless, pretty much", said Brown.

Morales did not identify the officers or say how they were disciplined, and he walked out of the press conference without taking questions. Later, that same officer mocks Brown while talking to another officer about what happened, saying he thought Brown "was being an ass" and "trying to hide something".

The Bucks described the treatment of Brown as inexcusable, reiterating the player had retained the franchise's support in the four months since the incident. "And I'm going to be honest with you, we're going to need your support during the challenges".
