Brown illegally parked in a disabled spot Jan. 26, 2018, outside a Walgreens and was talking to Milwaukee Police Department officers when the situation escalated.
MPD officers took him down and used a Taser because Brown didn't immediately remove his hands from his pockets when he was ordered to by police.
