Police Officer Who Killed Sylville Smith Fired For Sex Assault Allegations
Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown, the trigger-happy bacon boy who shot and killed Sylville Smith, no longer has a job. Not because he used questionable judgement when he killed a potentially unarmed black man, but because he is being accused of the sexual assault of a man.
On August 15th, a victim reported to Milwaukee police he had been sexually assaulted by Heaggan-Brown while off-duty. An investigation, conducted by MPD’s Internal Affairs Division and Sensitive Crimes Division, resulted in the criminal complaint filed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office. MPD’s investigation revealed additional allegations, resulting in added charges.
The criminal complaint filed against Heaggan-Brown on October 20th indicates there were four victims in all. The incidents described in the complaint happened in December 2015, July 2016 and August 2016.
In the most recent alleged crime, Heaggan-Brown apparently dropped an adult victim off at St. Joseph’s Hospital on August 15th. Heaggan-Brown told hospital workers the victim was “completely out, zonked out of his gourd.” While nurses were giving aid to the victim, the complaint indicates the victim “flipped out. ‘Help me, help me, he was touching me,’ exclaimed (the victim).”
Upon investigation, police found that Heaggan-Brown had solicited male prostitutes over a dozen different times, one who had to be hospitalized over an alleged drugging.
The officer will be arraigned November 4th for second degree sexual assault (two counts), prostitution (two counts), capture an intimate representation without consent.
We hope he rots in the bing for all of these new charges AND the shooting.
