The video, released by the Milwaukee Police Wednesday, shows a single officer approach the 22-year-old rookie guard after he parked his car across two handicapped spots on Jan. 26.
Brown complies with the officer’s questions, but the cop accuses him of acting like a “badass.”
Within eight minutes, he’s surrounded by police officers, and as they’re talking, one yells, “Take your hands out of your pockets now!”
Brown says he has “stuff in his hands” and about three seconds later, the cops pull him to the ground.
An officer screams, “Taser! Taser! Taser!” and one of the cops zaps Brown, who can be heard grunting in pain.
Brown was later released without charges.
“What should have been a simple parking ticket turned into an attempt at police intimidation, followed by the unlawful use of force, including being handcuffed and Tased, and unlawfully booked,” Brown wrote on Twitter Wednesday. He compared himself to Eric Garner, Stephon Clark and other black men killed by police.
“The common denominator in all of these situations has been racism towards the minority community, the abuse of power and the lack of accountability for officers involved.”
Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales apologized and said the cops acted inappropriately.
