Police Apologize for Arrest of Bucks Guard Sterling Brown

The police department released body camera video late Wednesday of the January 26 incident outside a Walgreens drug store, where officers confronted the basketball player, reported WITI-TV. The basketball player tells officers that he needs to empty items out of his hands, first. The video shows a tense situation that escalated quickly.

Body-cam video of what happened was released Wednesday.

Spokeswoman Amy Hasenberg says Walker also agrees with Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch's comments Thursday calling the newly released video "disconcerting" and "alarming".

Brown said he would file suit against the Milwaukee Police Department.

Brown is rightfully using the moment to stand up against the use of aggressive tactics by police officers and what the player and many others feel is a direct attack by authorities against people of color. An officer can then be heard yelling, "Taser!"

The violent arrest of Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown has turned public attention to the city's police department, which has a lengthy history of racism.

Irvin's concerns were heightened when Milwaukee's Assistant Police Chief Michael Brunson Sr. warned parishioners at a local church on Sunday that a video of the encounter would soon be released.

When Brown exits the Walgreens, he is confronted by a Milwaukee police officer. The officer asks for Brown's driver's license, tells him to "back up" and pushes him, the video shows.

Brown was initially arrested for resisting or obstructing an officer, though charges were not pressed following an internal review. "I promise that when the department is involved in events of this nature, we'll be honest about them, and we are", he said. Without warning, all three officers grabbed Brown and threw him on the ground.

In a news conference Wednesday, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said that the officers involved "acted inappropriately" and were "recently disciplined", but he did not answer reporters' questions about how many officers were disciplined or what that discipline entailed. The backup officers that were called were each suspended for 10 and 15 days, per the Journal Sentinel.
