Video of the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown has been released to the public after the January arrest, the Washington Post reports.

The big picture: The arrest of Brown, who was released that same day, gives the public another glimpse into policing issues and brutality African Americans and other minorities face around the country no matter how famous. Jamaal Smith, a racial justice community engagement manager for the YWCA of Southeast Wisconsin, spoke to the Post and explained, “It’s pretty typical of the police community relations in Milwaukee and nationwide... We’re talking about the most segregated metropolitan area in the country.”
