The first day of the Waukesha Christmas Parade trial was more chaos than court procedure.
It took Darrell Brooks Jr. just eight minutes to stop jury selection because of repeated outbursts. The judge in the case eventually sent Brooks to a separate courtroom so he couldn’t continue to interrupt. Yesterday was the first day of jury selection, the judge hopes to pick a jury today. Brooks is looking at life in prison if convicted of driving through the parade crowd last year. Six people died and 60 others were hurt.
Brooks is acting as his own lawyer in the case.
