Waukesha parade attack: Video captures moment Darrell Brooks is arrested

Dramatic doorbell video captured the moment the suspect in the deadly Christmas parade vehicular rampage in Wisconsin was collared – after reportedly telling the homeowner he was homeless and waiting for an Uber.

The Ring footage obtained by NBC News shows Darrell Brooks, 39, minutes after he allegedly mowed down revelers at the Sunday parade, where five people ranging in age from 39 to 81 were killed and 48 others injured.

The T-shirt-clad suspect is seen shivering outside the house, which is located about a half-mile from the parade route, and knocking on the door just after 5 p.m. Sunday, about 20 minutes after he allegedly plowed into the crowd.

“I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting for it over here, but I don’t know when it’s coming,” he is heard telling resident Daniel Rider, according to NBC News.

“Can you call it for me please? I’m homeless,” he adds.

Rider told the news outlet he had been on a hunting trip and was watching a football game at the time of the incident, so he was unaware of what had just happened nearby.New videos have emerged showing the Wisconsin parade rampagePlay Video

The resident told NBC News that he invited Brooks inside, gave him a jacket, made him a sandwich and let him use his phone.

“All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I’m getting extra nervous,” he said, adding that he then asked his guest to leave.

Brooks left but then began pounding on his door again, saying he left his ID behind, after a neighbor called the cops, NBC News said.

“Then the next thing you know, you see the cops with lights on him saying, ‘Hands in the air! Hands in the air!’” Rider said.

One neighbor said Darrell Brooks “was always a little off.”

“Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!,” he says as he appears to comply.

Meanwhile, another neighbor told the Sun that Brooks “was always a little off.”

“I didn’t know him more than ‘Hi’ and ‘Bye’ but I remember seeing that red truck parked there,” the person, who didn’t want to be named, told the news outlet, referring to the suspect’s Ford Escort SUV.

Another neighbor, who identified herself as Ebony, told the Sun: “He must’ve snapped. The whole thing is messed up but it doesn’t surprise me.”

No one answered the door of the home that neighbors said Brooks shared with his mother, according to the Sun.
