MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Milwaukee Bucks player John Henson says the owner of a Wisconsin jewelry store where he says employees racially profiled him apologized for what happened.
   Henson said Thomas Dixon, owner of Schwanke-Kasten Jewelers in suburban Whitefish Bay, met with him at the team's training facility on Tuesday. Henson said employees on Monday refused to let him in the store, then called police.
   Henson posted an account of the encounter on Instagram, saying he intended to look at a watch at the store but that workers locked the door during normal business hours and told him to leave.
   Henson said he was then questioned by police officers about the vehicle he was driving and what he wanted to purchase. He called what happened "degrading."
