Bucks G Brown Reaches Settlement

By Adam Roberts – 11/10/2020

Bucks guard Sterling Brown has agreed to a 750-thousand-dollar settlement in his civil rights lawsuit against the city of Milwaukee.

In January of 2018, Brown says police targeted him outside a Walgreens because he is Black. Police used a stun gun on Brown when he didn’t remove his hands from his pockets. Brown filed the lawsuit in June of 2018 after body cam footage of the incident was released.

Brown initially had received a 400,000 dollar offer back in October of last year which he rejected.

ESPN’s Eric Woodyard reported that in addition to money, Brown wants the settlement to include a joint statement from the City of Milwaukee that includes an admission of a constitutional violation, as well as a commitment to incorporate changes to the Milwaukee Police Department Standard Operating Procedures.
