Newly Released Arrest Video Shows Bucks Player Sterling Brown Get Tased

But this was a situation where what appears to be five squad cars and eight police officers are handling a parking violation.

A parking violation in a Walgreens parking lot turned into a night Sterling Brown would never forget.

Brown continued to resist while on the ground and as a result, the officer said, "a Taser had to be employed to get Brown in control with handcuffs".

Brown, meanwhile, told ABC News anchor Robin Roberts on Thursday that reliving the incident has stoked his anger. If a person takes issue with an officer or the reason for a stop, they should cooperate in the moment and file a complaint later, the group said in a statement. A passenger told the officer the driver was in the Walgreens, the officer wrote.

"I got up on your face?"

Brown, responding to the video's release, asked for "peaceful support to ensure no further damage to our community".

"I have stuff in my hands", Brown responds, before a scuffle breaks out and the player is tased. An officer can then be heard yelling, "Taser!" The video is reported to provide no evidence of Brown doing anything to provoke the officers before being tased. Police arrested Brown but he was not charged; he only received a parking citation.

Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales released a statement in front of reporters Wednesday and said the officers "acted inappropriately" toward Brown.

He left without taking questions. "So what, ' the officer says".

"On social media, the reaction to the video was fierce, with Sterling Brown's name quickly trending on Twitter and several teammates posting a photo on various platforms that said simply: "#STANDWITHSTERLING".

"My experience with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and shouldn't happen to anybody", Brown said in a statement Wednesday.

"When I took office, I vowed to rebuild trust between the Milwaukee Police Department and the community".

The video, published on YouTube, shows officers pulling Mr Brown to the ground by his auto, with one shouting, "Taser, taser, taser". "It's being handled. I appreciate if y'all respect that right now", said Brown.

"If the guy hadn't been such a dick it would've been - 'Hey, have a nice day, ' you know?" one officer says after the arrest. When the story broke city-wide the following year, Milwaukee saw marches and demonstrations - and then a massive, long-running drop in 911 calls from communities of color, a 2016 study found. "It's a hard job law enforcement has, but most importantly, we have to restore the trust in this community between our police and our community", said Lucas.

The NBA player, who is the son of a retired IL police officer, was cited for a parking violation, and he played a game later that day with bruises on his face. "So if there's ever an incident where one of our members makes a mistake, unnecessarily escalating a situation, I'm going to be honest and transparent about it". We are. I also promised to change the direction of the Department and through meetings with intergovernmental partners, community-based and faith organizations, and system partners we have begun that process.

Morales was appointed chief in February, following the retirement of Edward Flynn, who held the position for 10 years.
