Darrell Brooks plea hearing postponed for Milwaukee case

A Milwaukee County plea hearing for Darrell Brooks, the man accused of driving through the Waukesha Christmas Parade in 2021, has been postponed to July 28.

The hearing stems from a case in which Brooks is accused of trying to run over the mother of his child in Milwaukee. He's charged with reckless endangering safety, use of a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm by a felon. 

That incident happened before the Waukesha parade attack, in which six were killed and dozens more were injured.

In December 2021, Brooks was also charged in Milwaukee County for allegedly intimidating a witness. He is accused of making dozens of calls from jail to the victim in a domestic violence case. Fourteen of the calls were intimidating. In that domestic violence case, he was charged with five counts and will be back in court for those charges on May 26.

Brooks faces more than 80 charges in connection with the parade attack in Waukesha in November 2021, including six homicide counts. His trial is scheduled to start Oct. 3.
