Sterling Brown writes of 2018 arrest in The Player's Tribune

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Sterling Brown of the Milwaukee Bucks writes about his encounter with Milwaukee police in a piece in The Player's Tribune.

Brown's article is called "Your Money Can't Silence Me," and in it, he says "The City of Milwaukee wanted to give me $400,000 to be quiet after cops kneeled on my neck, stood on my ankle and Tased me in a parking lot."

Brown adds that he can't be quiet. He's referring to a 2018 arrest in a Walgreen's parking lot.

Brown has sued the city over that arrest and he's already rejected one settlement offer.

In his article, Brown says he wants more than money, he wants police to show respect and to be held accountable when they step out of line.
