MILWAUKEE (AP) _ 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.




His defense attorney, Steve Kohn, declined to comment after the hearing.




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. He's appealing that decision.
