Bucks' Sterling Brown Settles Lawsuit With City of Milwaukee

Sterling Brown of the Milwaukee Bucks was a patron at a drug store in 2018, and allegedly double parked his car. The police got involved and next thing you know, Brown was tasered and arrested.

Turns out that shouldn't have been the case at all, and Brown sued the Police department/City of Milwaukee. It's been announced Brown and the city have reached an agreement for $750,000, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. 

The report also included:

Brown and his attorneys maintained in the lawsuit that the arrest was race-based and used excessive force. The city will also admit in a statement that Brown suffered a constitutional violation and commit to incorporate changes to Milwaukee Police Department standard operating procedures within 180 days of the settlement agreement.

Brown originally rejected a $400,000 offer from the City and proceeded further. Brown appeared in 52 games last year for the Bucks, averaging 5.1 points.
