LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The SUV driver who took part in a Christmas parade in suburban Milwaukee, killing at least five people and injuring 48, is a registered sex offender in Nevada.

Darrell Brooks, Jr., 39, was convicted in 2006 of lawful sexual seduction, according to records. Online, he identifies as rapper MathBoi Fly.

Nevada court records show that Brooks’ probation was revoked in his sexual seduction case in 2007.

According to the Nevada Department of Corrections, Brooks was born in Michigan and began his 12- to 36-month term in July 2007. He was released in September 2008.

The case is his only felony conviction in Nevada, officials said.

According to the Nevada Sex Offender Registry, Brooks has a primary address listed in Reno. This is a level 2 non-compliant sex offender.

The Waukesha Police Chief said there was no evidence Sunday’s crash was a terrorist attack or that Brooks knew anyone in the parade.

Brooks has two criminal cases pending in Milwaukee County. In one case, filed on November 5, he is charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, bail and battery. Records show that a $ 1,000 cash bond was issued on Friday.

In the other case, filed in July 2020, Brooks is charged with reckless endangerment and illegal possession of a firearm.

In the most recent one, a woman told police that Brooks had deliberately run over her with her vehicle in the parking lot of a gas station after a fight. She was hospitalized for her injuries.

Five people were killed in Sunday’s incident. At least nine patients – mostly children – were listed in critical condition Monday in two hospitals, and seven more were reported in serious condition.
