Milwaukee cop convicted after handling man roughly

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- A fired Milwaukee police officer has been convicted after a police video showed him slamming a suspect's head against a wall during an arrest last year.

A jury found 49-year-old Rodney R. Lloyd guilty Thursday of misconduct in public office. He was acquitted of a separate charge of abusing a prisoner.

Lloyd had arrested a man on a domestic-violence complaint last June and brought him to a police station. The criminal complaint says the man was taken into the booking room, where Lloyd slammed his head into a concrete wall.

Lloyd faces a maximum penalty of 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine when he's sentenced May 9.

Lloyd was fired after the incident but he's appealing that decision.
