He said the officer was a 6 year veteran of the of force and had no prior record of incidents.
Jackson said Wilson had earlier responded to a call about a robbery before encountering Brown later.
Jackson did not take any questions or clarify whether he meant to say Wilson had believed Brown was a suspect in the robbery.
Without elaboration the reference to the robbery seemed calculated to impugn the dead teenager's character.
