According to the criminal complaint filed against Brooks on Monday, it was clear to police officers that ...this was an intentional act to strike and hurt as many people as possible....

Darrell appeared in court for the first time on Tuesday and his bail was set at $5million.

He was reportedly fleeing the scene of a domestic violence disturbance just before the crash, investigators say.

Brooks was seen being led into court in shackles and a protective vest during the brief appearance.

At one point the suspect appeared to weep and held his head in his hands.


Brooks, who has a lengthy criminal history dating back to 1999, had been released on $1,000 bond just three weeks earlier after allegedly punching and attempting to run over his ex-girlfriend at a gas station.

Some of Brooks' neighbors described the 39-year-old as odd, strange and suggested he must have ...snapped... before allegedly carrying out the horrific parade attack.

One of Brooks' neighbors, who asked not to be identified, told The Sun that the 39-year-old ...was always a little off....

...I didn't know him more than ...hi and bye' but I remember seeing that red truck parked there,... they said.

Brooks is also a registered sex offender in Nevada, having been convicted of having consensual sex with a 15-year-old girl in 2006, with whom he had a child. For that offense, he severed three years probation.

A warrant was outstanding for his arrest in Nevada at the time of Sunday's attack for violating the state's sex crime laws in 2016. He allegedly skipped bail on the offense and fled the region.

Despite being detained in Wisconsin twice after that, Brooks managed to avoid being turned over to authorities in Nevada and obtained freedom on both occasions.
