Milwaukee’s police chief apologized and said his officers “acted inappropriately” when they used a stun gun on Milwaukee Bucks star Sterling Brown. The department also released body cam footage of the incident from January.
“During the encounter, Mr. Brown was decentralized, Tased and arrested,” Alfonso Morales, the police chief, said at a press conference Wednesday.
“Our department conducted an investigation into the incident, which revealed members acted inappropriately, and those members were recently disciplined.”
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel identified the officer who confronted Brown as Joseph Grams, a former soldier, and said he was suspended for two days. At least two other officers were suspended, one for 10 days and another for 15.
The incident happened around 2 a.m. on January 26 in a mostly empty Walgreens parking lot. Brown left his Mercedes idling across parking lanes while he was in the store, the video released Wednesday shows.
When Brown exits the Walgreens, he

A Milwaukee teenager was beaten, stabbed and burned over a video game system, police said.
Dennis King, 15, was found dead in an abandoned home on Sunday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He had been missing since May 11.
Police said he was beaten with a hammer and stabbed in the neck before his body was burned.
Malik Terrell, 21, was arrested in Chicago on Monday for the murder. In court on Tuesday, prosecutors said Terrell killed King over a video game system. Prosecutors said Terrell and two of his brothers assumed that King’s friend stole their console, and since they thought King was involved, they killed him.
It’s unclear which system led to the slaughter.
“I’m heartbroken,” King’s aunt Kelley Wilson told WITI in Milwaukee. “I’m devastated … He’s a good kid. He never deserved none of this.”
Terrell has been charged with first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a life sentence if convicted.

A Miami man was not happy to find out his roommate was taking “man’s best friend” to an incredibly creepy new level.
The man was reviewing his in-home video surveillance system when he saw his roommate, Roberson Lubin, 48, laying on a bed with his roommate’s dog, Mickey, and petting him in a more-than-friendly way.
He called police, and showed them the video.
According to a police report, the video captured Lubin “laying on a bed with the canine laying beside him. The defendant was stroking the canine’s penis several times and squeezing/cupping his testicles,” the report says.
Lubin was arrested on April 24 and charged with illegal “sexual activities involving animals,” a first degree misdemeanor under Florida law punishable by up to one year in prison.
Court records indicate Lubin was arraigned on the charges the next day and released to a jail diversion program. He was also ordered to stay away from his

We’ve all been there.
You go to Popeyes, order from Wendy’s, realize you’re not at Wendy’s, and then try to throw a chair through a window.
Okay, maybe you haven’t been there, but on April 8, that’s exactly what happened with one particular woman, according to the New York Daily News.
Now, the NYPD wants help recognizing the lady responsible for a destructive freakout at a Popeyes in Staten Island.
Apparently, the woman wanted something from the “4 for $4” menu at Wendy’s, and was upset at the realization that she was, in fact, at a Popeyes. She ordered the meal anyway, the Daily News reported, sat down to eat and then had some words to say on the way out.
In the video, provided to Oxygen.com by the NYPD, the unidentified woman makes it to the door of the establishment before she turns around, yells, sticks out her tongue and makes an

The police department in Cambridge, Massachusetts is catching heat over a video filmed Friday that captured officers punching a black Harvard student who had walked into a busy street and taken off his clothes.
Harvard University President Drew Faust called the police behavior “profoundly disturbing” and “upsetting” in an email to the university community Monday, according to the Boston Globe. The Harvard Black Law Student Association told the local Cambridge Day newspaper that the arrest was “a brutal instance of police violence.”
The student, Selorm Ohene, had been the subject of numerous 911 calls and was suspected of being under the influence of drugs, police said. A video from a bystander showed three Cambridge police officers and one transit police officer approaching Ohene on the street’s traffic island and attempting to talk to him. The three policemen converge on Ohene and throw him to the ground. As he squirmed underneath them, an officer hit him in the face five times,

A fake video that claimed to be a Hillary Clinton sex tape has been traced back to a Reddit account linked to the Russian firm accused of meddling in the 2016 election.
An account that posted GIFs from the clip, under the name Rubinjer, is associated with the Internet Research Agency based in St. Petersburg, according to NBC News. The Internet Research Agency is one of three Russian groups charged in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into election interference.
Short animated sequences from the phony sex tape were posted to Reddit’s r/The_Donald page, a popular forum for extreme President Trump supporters. One post was titled, “This is how Hillary gets black votes.”
The clip, called “Leaked Hillary Clinton’s Hotel Sex Tape with Black Guy,” was also posted to porn sites PornHub and SpankBang by Rubinjer and was viewed over 250,000 times. Neither site commented on the clip.

It only takes a minute.
Two people in matching hooded sweatshirts, black pants and shoes storm into a jewelry store and perform a symphony-like smash-and-grab operation. They’re frantic but methodical, snatching a covering off the glass cases before smashing them, grabbing whatever they can and stuffing the loot into backpacks.
The whole operation was captured by the store’s surveillance camera, and Florida police released the video in hopes of catching the pair they think is responsible. According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the suspects got away with up between $50,000 to $100,000 in jewelry and rare coins. They forced open the back door of the Estate Coin and Jewelry Galleria at around 1 a.m. on March 29. The store is located in Sarasota, on the west coast of Florida.
The Tribune reported that the day before, a couple came into a nearby store. Other jewelry store owners said the suspects came into their stores

An alleged video of disgraced USA Gymnastics Larry Nassar was found on his former boss’ computer as he was being arrested in connection with his own alleged sexual misconduct. Nassar’s ex-boss and former dean at Michigan State University William Strampel once said he didn’t believe the allegations against Nassar.
According to a police affidavit, obtained by MLive in Michigan, on Strampel’s computer was a video of “Dr. Larry Nassar performing ‘treatment’ on a young female patient.”
Additionally, Strampel is accused of sexual abuse himself. Police accuse him of sexually abusing female medical students. On his computer, police allegedly found “approximately 50 photos of bare vaginas, nude and semi-nude women, sex toys and pornography.”
Strampel was Nassar’s boss and back in 2016 he stated he didn’t believe the allegations against Nassar, the Wall Street Journal reported. He announced a leave of absence for medical reasons in December.
Earlier this year, former USA Gymnastics physician Nassar was
