MILWAUKEE — A fired Milwaukee police officer who was convicted of slamming a suspect's head against a wall has completed his community service, meaning he won't serve jail time.

A jury convicted 49-year-old Rodney R. Lloyd in April of misconduct in public office. He faced up to 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine.

A judge fined him $2,000 and stayed a 45-day jail sentence, meaning Lloyd would only serve the time if he failed to pay the fine or complete 250 hours of community service.

Online court records say the court verified Lloyd's community service Tuesday and permanently stayed the jail sentence.

Lloyd arrested a man on a domestic-violence complaint last year. Prosecutors say Lloyd slammed the suspect's head into a concrete wall when the man was being verbally abusive.
