Case dismissed against Milwaukee man in death of 34-year-old
MILWAUKEE - Charges were dismissed on Tuesday, March 8 against Jerry Davis of Milwaukee, who had been charged in connection with the death of a 34-year-old man in December.
Davis had faced charges including second-degree recklessly endangering safety in connection with an incident that happened near 10th and North Avenue in Milwaukee on Dec. 11.
The criminal complaint said Davis was in a parked car when two people approached. Prosecutors say Davis then drove off as Aaron Alexander "lunged into the driver’s seat." Alexander was hanging/stuck in the driver's window.
After hitting a pedestrian, the complaint says Davis drove the wrong way and swerved down North Avenue, causing two crashes. At some point, Alexander was thrown from the vehicle.
