“Detective Trusoni spoke with another witness who described the same zig zag driving pattern from the SUV and the witness further indicated that he thought it was ‘a direct motive to hit multiple parade participants,'” the complaint added.

Court Commissioner Kevin Costello cited Brooks’ criminal record, jumping bail history and the “shocking” nature of the crime when he was granted $ 5 million bail on Tuesday.

“Two detectives commented that this was a deliberate act. The vehicle seemed to turn into individuals. In fact, at one point it was trying to avoid the other vehicle,” Costello said. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my long career. It’s a very strong case for the state.”
