Woman alleges Darrell E. Brooks Jr., the Wisconsin man suspected of plowing his SUV through the Waukesha Christmas Parade on Sunday – killing five people and injuring more than 40 others – intentionally knocked her down with his vehicle earlier this month, according to a Monday Report.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports:

Darrell Brooks Jr., the man suspected of being the driver, has been charged three times in less than two years with recklessly endangering the safety of others, most recently on November 5 in connection with ‘an incident of domestic violence for which he was also charged. by resisting or obstructing an agent. In this month’s case, a woman told police Brooks purposely hit her “with his vehicle” as she walked through the parking lot of a gas station after he followed her there after a fight, according to the criminal complaint. The woman was hospitalized for her injuries, court records show.

Brooks posted $ 1,000 bail on Nov. 11 in the most recent incident and was released from the Milwaukee County Jail on Nov. 16, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office. He was also charged in July 2020 with two counts of second degree felony recklessly endangering the safety of others by using a dangerous weapon.

On Monday, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office, headed by District Attorney John Chisholm, said the $ 1,000 bond was “inappropriate” due to the seriousness of the charges.

“This office is currently conducting an internal review of the decision to make the recent bail recommendation in this case to determine the appropriate next steps,” the statement said.

Parade attendees watched in horror as a red SUV drove through the annual event, hitting members of the Waukesha South High School Blackshirt Band and the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies, who confirmed some of their members died in the tragedy.

“Those who died were extremely passionate grannies. Their eyes were shining… with the joy of being a Granny. They were the glue… held us together, ”the group said.

Six children injured in the parade were rushed to Wisconsin Children’s Hospital and are in critical condition. Three others are in serious condition, according to local officials.
