Milwaukee Officer Who First Confronted Bucks Rookie Sterling Brown Outside Walgreens Suspended for 2 Days

The Milwaukee police officer who first confronted Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown outside a Walgreens in January was suspended for two days, the Journal Sentinel has learned.

Two supervisors who later arrived, escalating the situation, were suspended for 10 and 15 days, sources said. Several other officers were reprimanded.

Police Chief Alfonso Morales has not named any of the officers disciplined, nor has he detailed which department rules they violated during their encounter with Brown.

The officer who questioned Brown about parking illegally across two handicap spaces at 2 a.m. January 26 was Joseph Grams, the Journal Sentinel has confirmed.

Grams, who served as an Army ranger, joined the department in 2015 and received about $49,000 in pay last year.

City leaders demand details
