MILWAUKEE- The City of Milwaukee and Bucks player Sterling Brown may be close to finding a resolution to Brown’s lawsuit against the Milwaukee Police Department.
The Milwaukee City Attorney’s office has approved $400,000 that can be used in a settlement with Brown. He is suing the Milwaukee Police Department after he was tased, and arrested, in January of 2018. Brown was approached by several Milwaukee Police Officers after illegally parking his car in a handicapped spot outside of a Walgreens on Milwaukee’s south side.
The settlement money has been approved through the City Attorney’s office and now heads to the Common Council’s Judiciary and Legislation Committee which meets next on June 10th.
According to a signed letter written by Deputy City Attorney Jan A Smokowicz, the money will cover all damages and attorney’s fees.
