Detective Jay Carpenter, who interviewed Brooks the day after the parade, also appeared in court to describe to the jury five pieces of the suspect’s five-hour interview after he was arrested.

Brooks claimed at the time that he came to Waukesha with a friend he didn’t identify.He also didn’t answer why he chose to plow through the holiday parade. 

‘I wasn’t sure if you were the driver initially, but I did believe you were involved,’ Carpenter told Brooks during his cross-examination. ‘There is information I withheld from you, yes.’

‘Mr.Brooks was still unwilling to explain to us, give us the clarity…. to understand and know why he did it,’ Carpenter said.

Prosecutors claim Brooks, who lives in Milwaukee, intentionally drove his car through police barricades and into the crowds participating in the annual parade in the city of Waukesha, about 15 miles west of downtown Milwaukee.
