Ex-girlfriend of parade attack suspect says she is ‘mortified’
Darrell Brooks faces six homicide charges

The former girlfriend of the man accused of driving his car into a Christmas parade crowd near ウォーキシャ, ウィスコンシン, said she was embarrassed to be the mother to his children.

ダレルブルックス, 38, was charged on Tuesday with five counts of intentional 殺人 after he allegedly drove his car into a crowd watching a Christmas parade on Sunday. Six people were killed and more than 50 others injured.

A former girlfriend spoke with ニューヨークポスト, telling the outlet she wasmortifiedby the violent event and could not sleep.

その女, who was not named by the paper, said she and her son have had very little contact with Mr Brooks in the past 20 年. She claims he walked out on them when her child was three months old.

“He disappeared when my son was almost three months old," 彼女は言いました. “I’ve done all of this on my own, raised my child by myself.”

She told the paper that when she saw his photo online, she thoughtwhat the f***?”

“I was embarrassed enough to have him as the father of my child beforehand, 彼は彼の世話をしていなかったので," 彼女は言いました. “What do you think I am now? Mortified.”

She said she wassickenedby his actions, and wished she could replace him as the father of her child. She said she has lost sleep over the incident and has been donating and saying prayers for the victims.

The ex also revealed that Mr Brooks’ 母, ドーンウッズ, was wracked with guilt over paying the $1,000 bail that allowed her son to leave custody days before he allegedly drove into the crowd.

「彼女は結果として人々が殺されたことを大破しました、そして彼女は, 「私は自分を責めています, 私が彼を救い出さなかったので, これは起こらなかっただろう,’” the ex said.

Mr Brooks was arrested initially after he was accused of punching the mother of his child and intentionally hitting her with his car on 2 11月. Milwaukee prosecutors called the bondinappropriately lowconsidering his actions.

His ex said his mother was always trying to push him to be a better man, and never condoned his allegedly violent and illegal acts.

“She’s always condemned everything that he’s done … even weed possession, she’s never condoned," 彼女は言いました. “She’s always been very resolute on, ‘You need to do better. You need to do right. This is not how I raised you.’”
