Multiple media outlets were reporting today, Jan. 26, that Maywood native and NBA rookie shooting guard Sterling Brown was arrested and Tasered by Milwaukee Police early Friday morning.
Per a report by WISN-AM, a Milwaukee radio station, the arrest allegedly resulted from a confrontation Sterling had with police officers over a parking ticket. The incident happened at around 2 a.m., Friday, according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.
The radio station reported that a law enforcement official told them that Brown was double parked “in two handicapped spaces at the Walgreen’s near S. 27th St. and W. National Ave.
“According to the source, Milwaukee Police officers were writing a parking ticket on Brown’s Mercedes when Brown confronted them and became combative. One of the officers then used his Taser on Brown and arrested him for resisting arrest.”
Brown — the younger brother of Maywood native, Proviso East basketball standout and NBA veteran Shannon brown — was himself a Proviso East standout before excelling at Southern Methodist University.
