Text of a statement from Milwaukee Bucks guard Sterling Brown about his
January arrest by Milwaukee police during an interaction over a parking
violation:

My experience in January with the Milwaukee Police Department was wrong and
shouldn’t happen to anybody. What should have been a simple parking ticket
turned into an attempt at police intimidation Leonard

 , followed by the unlawful use of physical
force, including being handcuffed and tased, and then unlawfully booked. This
experience with the Milwaukee Police Department has forced me to stand up and
tell my story so that I can help prevent these injustices from happening in the
future.

Situations like mine and worse happen every day in the black community. Being
a voice and a face for people who won’t be heard and don’t have the same
platform as I have is a responsibility I take seriously. I am speaking for
Dontre Hamilton of Milwaukee, Laquan McDonald of Chicago, Stephon Clark of
Sacramento, Eric Garner of New York Jason
Pominville Jersey Kids
 , and the list goes on. These people aren’t
able to speak anymore because of unjust actions by those who are supposed to
”serve and protect” the people.

The common denominator in all of these situations has been racism towards the
minority community, the abuse of power, and the lack of accountability for
officers involved. The lack of repercussions for the police officers involved in
so many of these cases is offensive. This is a slap in the face to the victims’
families and communities.

Black men shouldn’t have to have their guard up and instantly be on the
defensive when seeing a police officer, but it’s our reality and a real problem.
There must be mutual respect and both sides have to figure out how to accomplish
this.

There are no easy solutions to this problem, but there are strides that can
be made to create change. I will do my part in helping to prevent similar
incidents from happening to the minority community in the future.

This is bigger than me. My family, friends Josh Jones
Jersey
 , legal team, Priority Sports, Milwaukee Bucks, the black
community and the communities of all who stand against injustice plan to
continue the fight. Peaceful support to ensure no further damage to our
community is the only way to respond. I know many of you will share my anger and
frustration, but for our community to progress and grow, we need to build on
what we already have and not destroy it. I will take legal action against the
Milwaukee Police Department to continue forcing change in our community.

Utah
defensive lineman Lowell Lotulelei says Michigan defensive lineman Maurice Hurst
Jr. told him Saturday that he had been diagnosed with the same heart condition
as Lotulelei's older brother Womens

 , Star.

The comments came shortly after ESPN first reported Hurst will not be allowed
to participate in drills.

League spokesman Michael Signora confirmed that players can be held out based
on certain diagnoses but that he believed Hurst was still in town.

Jeff Foster, president of National Football Scouting, declined to confirm
details of what happened because of privacy concerns. But he did tell The
Associated Press that six to eight players have been withheld from drills this
year for reasons players were not aware of before their arrival.

Foster said that number has stayed relatively consistent over the past 13
years.

Hurst had been rising steadily on mock draft boards.

The 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive tackle had 59 tackles and 5 1/2 sacks last
season. He also had 13 tackles for loss and has been considered one component of
a deep class of defensive tackles in this year's draft.

Hurst's father played seven seasons with the New England Patriots as a
cornerback.

Word leaked just after defensive linemen and linebackers started talking to
reporters at the NFL's annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

"I just found out in the NFLPA meeting that we just had. He just said, 'Star
was your brother?' And I said yeah. He's like, 'Man Authentic Todd
Gurley Jersey
 , I just got the same thing that he did,'" Lowell
Lotulelei told reporters. "Obviously I didn't go through it, so I don't really
know what he's feeling like. But I kind of understand the disappointment just
because my brother trained just like he trained and you're expecting one thing
and getting another. I feel for him. It sucks. But I think he'll be fine just
like my brother was."

Five years ago, Star Lotulelei arrived at the combine as the expected first
pick in that year's draft.

Things changed dramatically after doctors identified an "abnormal" test on
his heart.

Lotulelei then sought additional opinions, eventually was cleared to exercise
and was taken by Carolina with the 14th overall selection in the 2013 draft. He
has missed only four games in five NFL seasons.
