The Milwaukee cop who fatally shot Sylville Smith in August is now embroiled in another legal mess. He's being accused of VIOLENTLY RAPING a man.
Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown made national news when he shot and KILLED Smith, a 23-year-old black man who police said was armed during a lethal confrontation that started with a traffic stop. Members of the community believe that Dominique MURDERED him in cold blood. Police are still investigating the incident.
But two days after the shooting, Dominique allegedly raped a man. Dominique has been suspended from the force and was being held on $100,000 bail Thursday, CNN affiliate WDJT reported. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
The alleged sexual assault occurred in the early morning of August 15 after a night of heavy drinking at a bar where the two men “sat and watched television as coverage of the Sherman Park protests aired,” the criminal complaint said.
After allegedly assaulting the man at the officer’s home, Heaggan-Brown took the accuser to a hospital and told a nurse the man “began to act weird and unresponsive” at a bar, according to the complaint.
Heaggan-Brown told a hospital security officer that the man was “completely out, zonked out of his gourd” after drinking, the complaint said.
Later, after seeing Heaggan-Brown in the emergency room, the man told hospital workers, “He raped me. He raped me,” according to the complaint.
