    La sfilata di Natale è iniziata domenica alle 16:00, con partecipanti a partire da Main St. e Whiterock Avenue. È sempre stata pensata per essere una breve parata, terminando a mezzo miglio di distanza all'angolo nord-est di Cutler Park. Alle 16:39, il SUV rosso viene filmato mentre sfreccia lungo Main Street. Si è schiantato tra la folla, e ha mandato corpi in volo, prima di proseguire verso la fine della sfilata, dove l'auto ha sfondato le barriere. Il SUV è stato trovato a meno di cinque isolati di distanza e l'autista è stato arrestato, ma non è chiaro esattamente dove

    The decision to hold him on bail in connection with the parade tragedy sparked outrage after it was revealed he was out on $1,000 bail when allegedly plowed through the crowd.

    Dopo aver trascorso otto mesi dietro le sbarre tra luglio 2020 e febbraio 2021 per aver sparato a un altro veicolo sulla strada dopo una rissa, Brooks si è trovato su cauzione dopo un legame in precedenza a $10,000 è stato abbandonato a $500 a febbraio.

    Poi è stato arrestato di nuovo, in novembre 2, a Milwaukee, for hunting down the mother of one of his children at a local hotel. He then followed her down the street with his red Ford SUV – the same vehicle suspected to have been used in last Sunday’s tragedy – e presumibilmente l'ha investita nel parcheggio di una stazione di servizio dopo che si è rifiutata di entrare nella sua macchina.

    DailyMail.com ha ottenuto copie del suo mandato di arresto per quell'incidente lunedì che rivelano che l'ha seguita fino a una stazione di servizio, la prese a pugni "a pugno chiuso"’ e poi l'ha investita.’

    Brooks è stato successivamente arrestato e accusato di cinque capi di imputazione, incluso il salto su cauzione, per non aver rispettato i termini di uno dei suoi molti altri requisiti di cauzione o libertà vigilata.

    però, in novembre 11, il criminale colpevole ancora una volta sfuggì al carcere pubblicando la cauzione – questa volta su a $1,000 obbligazione in contanti.

    Entro novembre 19 – due giorni prima dell'attacco di Waukesha – era di nuovo in strada; e per novembre 21, Brooks è stato autorizzato a tornare al volante della sua Ford.
