Darrell Brooks Jr.

Darrell Brooks Jr. is the man suspected of being the driver who viciously plowed through a crowded Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin killing 5 people and injuring at least 40.

Brooks has been charged three times in less than two years with recklessly endangering the safety of others, most recently in an incident in which he is accused of running a woman over with his vehicle in Milwaukee.

As of now there is no motive given for his horrific actions, though some reports say he was fleeing the scene of another crime.

Brooks faces at least five counts of first-degree intentional homicide as well as additional charges. The penalty for first-degree intentional homicide is a mandatory life prison sentence.
