MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A Milwaukee County jury found Rodney Lloyd guilty of misconduct in public office on Thursday, April 10th.

Lloyd is the former Milwaukee police officer who was fired after accusations he used excessive force on a prisoner. The incident was captured on video. Lloyd is seen driving the man’s head into a concrete block wall. The video also recorded sound. When the man asked Lloyd why he did that, Lloyd allegedly said it was because the man had earlier said something to the effect that he could take Lloyd out.

An Internal Affairs investigation concluded Lloyd had used excessive force. The information was sent to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office which then charged Lloyd.

The jury found Lloyd not guilty on a second charge of “abuse of residents of penal facilities.” Lloyd will be sentenced on May 9th.

In a separate proceeding, Lloyd is appealing his firing from the Milwaukee Police Department.

    Its about time that public officials are held accountable for their actions. It was clear from the video what actually occured and what about the other officer that was in the room witnessing that? The officer stated because he was calling him names…really?? I am sure being a officer this was not the 1st time he was called names.
