The man accused of chopping down participants at a Wisconsin parade was captured on a doorbell video recorded shortly after the tragedy that left five people dead and 48 injured.
Police have charged Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, with five counts of murder in connection with the incident in which an SUV plowed through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
The video begins with Brooks, who appears shaken, wearing only a t-shirt in the cold November, knocking on Rider’s front door about 20 minutes after the incident.
“I called an Uber and I’m waiting for it here, but I don’t know when it’s going to come,” Brooks said. “Can you call it for me? I’m not at home.”
Rider later said he didn’t know what had happened at the parade site because he had gone hunting and came home to watch a football game.
He said he let Brooks in, gave him a coat, and allowed him to use his cell phone.
The video shows Brooks walking on the sidewalk in front of Rider’s house, apparently trying to reach someone to help him flee.
“Suddenly, I looked out into the street and saw several police cars passing by and I became more and more worried,” Rider said.
At that point, Rider tells Brooks to leave. Though Brooks complied, he didn’t last long.
The video shows him banging on the door again, claiming that he was leave his identification inside.

“Oh, oh, oh,” Brooks said when the police arrived to arrest him.
