Jerry Davis

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.
