Former Milwaukee Police officer takes stand in excessive force trial

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee police officer, fired after accusations he used excessive force on a prisoner is now fighting criminal charges in court -- and a video of what happened is crucial evidence.

WARNING: Some may find the above video disturbing.

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.

In court Tuesday, there was a back-and-forth between Lloyd and the deputy district attorney prosecuting the case.

PROSECUTOR: "Did you intend for his head to hit the wall?"

LLOYD: "No sir, I didn't."
