Milwaukee police named the sergeants involved in the tasing and arrest of Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown in documents given to the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission. 

The documents give the names and disciplinary action taken against the officers involved. 

Sgt. Sean Mahnke was suspended for 15 days without pay for “failure to be a role model for professional police service and ensure the missing of the department was successfully accomplished.” He also was to implement “an employee improvement plan.”

The suspension will take place between August 20 to Sept. 2, and from Sept. 16 to Sept. 20, pending an appeal. 

Sgt. Jeffrey Krueger was suspended for 10 days without pay for the same charge as Mahnke. He too was expected to implement an employee improvement plan. 

His suspension will take place from Aug. 6 through Aug. 19, also pending appeal. 

A third officer was also suspended in the altercation for two days. That officer’s name was not included in the documents. 

Police Chief Alfonso Morales signed each of the documents, which were submitted to the Fire and Police Commissioners on May 21.
