Officer Kevin Brown: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
Updated Aug 9, 2018 at 10:41am

Kevin Brown is the Cincinnati police officer who tased an 11 year old girl after she was allegedly caught stealing food in a supermarket. Brown, 55, used his taser on 11 year old Donesha Gowdy in a Krogers supermarket on Monday night. He was off-duty at the time, working a second job as a security officer in the supermarket.

Cincinnati police chief Eliot K. Isaac said that his department was “extremely concerned” about the use of a taser on such a young child. And many members of the public have expressed outrage, saying that this never would have happened if Donesha Gowdy had been white.

Kevin Brown has been put on “restricted duty” while the department investigates the incident. Donesha Gowdy has been charged with theft and obstructing police business. She is at home with her mother while she awaits her trial in juvenile court.

On Monday night, Officer Kevin Brown was off duty and was working his second job as a member of the security detail at the Spring Grove Village Kroger supermarket in Cincinnati. At about 9:30, he approached a group of young girls whom he suspected of shoplifting. But according to Brown, the girls ignored him and just walked away. Police later said that Gowdy’s backpack was full of stolen snacks.

Brown asked the girls to stop but — he says — they ignored his repeated commands to stop and were heading out of the store. So the 55 year old cop pulled out his taser and tased 11 year old Donesha Gowdy in the back.
