Milwaukee Police Apologize To Bucks' Brown

Milwaukee Police Release Video Of Bucks’ Sterling Brown Being Tackled And Tased Over Parking Violation

The officer who initially questioned Brown is later heard mocking him to a colleague, saying the National Basketball Association player "was being an ass" and "trying to hide something", before adding: "and now he's like, 'I'm a Bucks player, blah, blah, blah".

Ultimately, Brown was initially stopped over a parking lot violation. "He repeatedly orders Brown to back up, telling him he's getting in his face, as Brown tells him not to touch him". Brown answers that and other questions.

Brown continues to speak with several officers as the dialogue becomes muted, with the initial officer wearing a camera slowly walking around Brown's vehicle.

"My experience with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn't happen to anyone", Brown said in a statement Wednesday. In his own statement, Brown connected his experience to the fatal killings of "Dontre Hamilton of Milwaukee, Laquan McDonald of Chicago, Stephon Clark of Sacramento, Eric Garner of NY, and the list goes on".

In a statement on Wednesday, he said that the "common denominator" in situations such as this was "racism towards the minority community".

During his news conference Monday, Barrett said the Morales video was not related to the incident with Brown.

"There are no easy solutions to this problem, but there are strides that can be made to create change", Brown said. Thankfully, both the department's chief and Mayor Tom Barrett have weighed in on the despicable incident. Brown left his Mercedes idling across parking lanes while he was in the store, the video released Wednesday shows.

The full video from the police can be seen here, with the incident beginning at the 7:55 mark.

Baltimore County officer shot, reports say
WBAL is reporting there's a large presence of Baltimore County police officers, including the chief, at the hospital. Mark Parry, a father of three, died after a suspected drunk driver struck his unmarked police vehicle .

"We're taking the situation seriously and we're encouraging the police department to act on the information that they get from the video and we want to send a message loud and clear to the community that effort will be put in place to try to safeguard this type of activity from being commonplace". The original officer walks to each of the other vehicles, explaining he just wanted one auto to show up and wait while he wrote Brown a ticket "because he was getting in my grill".

Brown eventually does show the officer his driver's licence.

"These are simple questions, and you're being all badass", the officer says after asking Brown for his name and after Brown had responded, "Sterling Brown". "Taser! Taser!" and Brown was on the ground groaning in pain.

The officer said he tried to help his colleagues "because Brown continued to resist being handcuffed".

Brown, meanwhile, told ABC News anchor Robin Roberts on Thursday that reliving the incident has stoked his anger.

The New York Times reported that "Police conduct toward black people has been a fraught issue in Milwaukee, where protesters have held demonstrations repeatedly in recent years in the wake of police shootings and the release of videos showing rough arrests". He was later seen at a hospital, the report said.

Brown was booked and received a $200 parking ticket. The Justice Department didn't charge Manney, who was only fired.

Brown had a bruise and scab on his face before a game between the Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets that was played later on the day of his arrest, according to WISN.
