New body cam video of Milwaukee Bucks’ Sterling Brown’s arrest
Yet another body cam video sheds light on the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown, and the brutal treatment he received at the hands of police showing new angles of an officer using a taser, the HuffPost reports.
Brown was assaulted and arrested by police over an alleged parking violation and the body cam footage video, obtained by WISN 12 News, shows the NBA player being tasered by cops with the Taser bar stuck to this lower back.
“I was just gonna drive stun him, but Sarge moved,” one of the officers can be heard saying.
Brown can be heard trying to reason with the cops.
“You could have talked, you didn’t have to touch,” he said to one of the officers.
Brown has filed a lawsuit in federal over the treatment against the city of Milwaukee and its police department. Body cam footage filmed back in January proved that there was foul play and excessive force used against Brown. New body cam video released after the initial video showed an officer stepped on Brown’s ankle as he lay helpless on the ground.
All this, for what?” Brown asked Officer James Collins as he stood on his right ankle.
“You’re stepping on my ankle, for what?”
“So you don’t kick us,” one of the officers answered.
The officers proceeded to taunt Brown. One started singing, “Money, money, money, money!”
Then an officer admitted to an attempt to cover things up because of the possibility of backlash. An officer asked why more police were on the way, he replied:
“We’re trying to protect ourselves.”
Since the first video was posted in May, officer Erik Andrade was fired for posting racist and derogatory content on social media about Brown.
According to the lawsuit, one of the officers later took to Twitter to mock Brown, saying, “Nice meeting Sterling Brown of the Milwaukee Bucks at work this morning! Lol#FearTheDeer”.
