Darrell Brooks attack ‘intentional’, he ‘seemed to swerve’ into people but avoid vehicles: Authorities

A police officer working the scene of the Waukesha Christmas parade attack believes suspect Darrell Brooks carried out an “intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible” as the SUV he was driving that day “appeared to be intentionally moving side to side,” according to a newly filed criminal complaint.

Brooks, who is facing five counts of first-degree intentional homicide, is currently being held on $5 million bail. A sixth count is likely coming in connection with the most recent death of 8-year-old Jackson Sparks.

criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court Tuesday details how an officer from the Waukesha City Police Department first thought Brooks was “going to come to a stop and attempt to make a right hand turn out of the parade route.”

“However, the vehicle then appeared to rapidly accelerate, as Officer Butryn heard tires squeal. The vehicle took an abrupt left turn into the crowd of parade participants,” it continued.

“At this point, it was clear to Officer Butryn that this was an intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible. Officer Butryn continued to run westbound on East Main Street, trailing the vehicle and its path,” the complaint said. “He observed the vehicle appeared to be intentionally moving side to side, striking multiple people, and bodies and objects were flying from the area of the vehicle.” – READ MORE
