Milwaukee Police Release Bodycam Video of Arrest & Tasing of NBA's Sterling Brown

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales released body-camera footage of the January arrest of Bucks guard Sterling Brown-which included the use of a stun gun, over what was ostensibly a parking violation-and issued an apology.

National Basketball Association player Sterling Brown was tased on video by Milwaukee police officers, and as more information comes to light about the incident, so has information about Sterling's family.

Leon Young told ABC News that Morales told him and other state lawmakers Thursday morning that one sergeant and two officers were disciplined in the incident, but said the chief told the lawmakers that statutory reasons prevented him from disclosing how they were punished. In the 30-minute video that was finally shared with the public, shows that Mr Brown does not seem to physically resist the arrest.

"My experience in January with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn't happen to anybody", Brown, who plans to file a civil rights lawsuit against police, wrote in a statement.

Sterling Brown says the incident, which ended with him lying groaning on the ground, was an "attempt at police intimidation".

The officer had noticed Brown's vehicle was parked across two handicapped spaces.

Brown released his statement in full on Twitter.

"Black men shouldn't have to have their guard up and instantly be on the defensive when seeing a police officer, but it's our reality and a real problem".

"I have stuff in my hands", Brown responds, before a scuffle breaks out and the player is tased.

It's unclear if the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame will offer Chastain the same treatment. Her bronze plaque, on the other hand, does not. "But I'm not an artist".

The department also has an alarming pattern of racism: Milwaukee police conduct more than three times the number of stops in primarily Black and Latino districts as in white districts, according to a study by the University Of Pennsylvania Law School Professor and Ph.D David Abrams published by the ACLU of Wisconsin in February.

"So I know Major League Baseball, as well as all of the sports leagues, have outstanding rookie career development programs, ongoing training", said Lucas.

"There must be mutual respect, and both sides have to figure out how to accomplish this", Brown continued. The video shows a tense situation that escalated quickly.

"This is bigger than me", he added.

On Twitter, Brown, the son of a retired IL police officer, pledged to take legal action against the Milwaukee Police Department, but called on his supporters to respond peacefully.

"Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case", the Bucks' statement said. "It shouldn't require an incident involving a professional athlete to draw attention to the fact that vulnerable people in our communities have experienced similar, and even worse, treatment".

The incident with Brown never sat well with Milwaukee Ald.

"As I understand it - you have to ask the chief these questions - give some rights to those individuals being disciplined in terms of the process", Barrett said. ESPN has requested that footage but, it was not released Wednesday.

Days after the incident, Donovan accused Mayor Tom Barrett, a frequent political rival, of having "ordered" that Brown not be charged with a crime - allegations Barrett strongly denied.
