Milton cops flagged for use of force in black teen's arrest- WCAX

Milton police are responding to what they say is misinformation on social media about the arrest of a black teen last month.

"In a Facebook post on Thursday, police say they investigated after multiple businesses were burglarized on April 30. They say they attempted to arrest a 17-year-old suspect from New Jersey and that he attempted to escape after giving officers a fake name and date of birth. He was later arrested on May 10. Police say video of the arrest posted Thursday on social media erroneously claimed the arrest happened this week. Police also denied accusations that officers used a Taser on the teen several times. Officials say that while the officers had a Taser drawn, it was never used.”
