MILWAUKEE (AP) — Police officials say they will not seek charges against Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown, who was arrested last week during a confrontation in a Walgreens parking lot.

Officers used a stun gun on Brown in an incident that happened about 2 a.m. Friday. Police have not released further details.

Milwaukee police said Monday that a review of reports and body camera footage shows Brown’s “actions and behavior” do not warrant a criminal charge. The matter has been turned over to an internal investigation, the results of which police say will be made public.

Bucks spokesman Barry Baum said the team is aware of the decision and backing Brown. Coach Joe Prunty said last week that “we support him in this” and “we believe it will be resolved quickly.”
