Wilson's account "sounds crazy," Michael Brown Sr. said on NBC's "Today" show. It's "disrespectful," McSpadden explained. Wilson said in his interview that Brown was the instigator of the incident, reaching for Wilson's gun and charging at him. "For one, my son, he respected law enforcement,'' Brown Sr. said. "Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn? It sounds crazy." Read »
