Police believe the man who plowed into a crowd of people in Wisconsin actually ran to a suspicious neighbor for help, just moments before he exploded – and it was on video.
Darrell Brooks Jr. He was captured on a doorbell cam in a house less than a mile from where he unloaded the parade-goers with his Ford Escape. In the video, you see Brooks knocking on the door and pleading for help, saying he has ordered an Uber that does not show up when he asks to use the homeowner’s phone.
Lots of crazy, neighbors, Daniel RyderObviously, the obligation … is to play a good Samaritan and invite the person inside, sandwich him, give him a blanket and call him his personal cell.
Before long, Ryder says he saw cop cars outside.
Unaware of what happened on the road, Ryder began to feel nervous for NBC News and asked Brooks to leave, which he did … and so on. Brooks lurched on the front porch, and when he saw the cops nearby – he tried to get back into Ryder’s house.
It didn’t work for him … the cops rushed in and told Brooks to lift up his hands, at which point he was arrested.
Brooks has been booked on a number of charges … including 5 counts of intentional homicide. The point is that when they actually drove through parade barricades and chased people, they avoided separate domestic disturbances.
He was recently released from prison for a separate case he was dealing with earlier this month.
