Darrell Brooks’ mother is ‘wrecked’ and ‘blaming herself’ for posting her son’s $1,000 bail just days before he allegedly got into his red Ford SUV and plowed into scores of holiday parade goers in Wisconsin, killing six and injuring dozens, according to an ex-girlfriend.
A former girlfriend of Brooks, a convicted felon who has a lengthy criminal record, told the New York Post on Wednesday that the man’s mother, Dawn Woods, sprung him from jail after his arrest for punching a woman.
Brooks was also accused of intentionally running the woman – who is the mother of his child – over with his car at a gas station on November 2.
‘She’s wrecked that people were killed as a result and she’s like, “I’m blaming myself, because had I not bailed him out, this wouldn’t have happened”,’ the ex-girlfriend, who spoke to the Post on condition of anonymity, said.
The ex-girlfriend, a resident of suburban Milwaukee, also shares a child with Brooks. She told the Post she has had very little contact with her former lover in the last 20 years.
