MILWAUKEE (AP) — NBA player Sterling Brown says he tried to remain calm when Milwaukee police used a stun gun to take him down during his arrest for a parking violation.
In an interview aired on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Friday, the Milwaukee Bucks player says police pinned him down and held his hands behind his back then used a Taser on him outside a Walgreens store Jan. 26.
An officer approached Brown for illegal parking, called for backup and six squads responded.
Brown says he gets mad every time he watches the police body camera video because he was “pretty much defenseless.” The video was publicly released Wednesday.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports three officers have been disciplined in the arrest, with suspensions ranging from two to 15 days.
