After allegedly plowing through Waukesha’s Christmas parade Sunday, Darrell Brooks Jr. showed up without his shoes, jacket or car on an unwitting couple’s front porch, asked for help and ate a sandwich inside.
Brooks showed up on the porch in the middle of a football game, knocked and asked if he could use the host’s phone.
Daniel Rider’s Ring doorbell camera recorded parts of the exchange in 20-second bursts, beginning about 20 minutes after the chaos at the parade.

Brooks says in the video after knocking on Rider’s door.
Brooks was polite and lucid throughout the encounter, Rider said, but he was shivering without a jacket or shoes.

"He said, ‘You’re showing me so much love man; I’m thankful that you’re showing me so much love here,’" Rider recounted.
"Because I had just given him a sandwich, warmed him up with a jacket."
