“The defendant got on top of her when she was on the floor, grabbed her throat and squeezed,” the complaint says. “This action made it extremely difficult for her to breath.”

WAUKESHA PARADE SUSPECT DARRELL BROOKS SAYS HE FEELS ‘DEHUMANIZED,’ ‘DEMONIZED’ IN FIRST JAILHOUSE INTERVIEW

The court documents are the latest to shed light on Brooks’ sprawling criminal history that includes numerous incidents of brutal domestic violence — foreshadowing the horrific attack on holiday revelers at an annual Christmas parade Nov. 21 in Waukesha. 

Brooks allegedly plowed his red Ford Escape into the crowd, killing six people and injuring more than 60.

The woman told police that the quarrel began Feb. 19, 2010, at her apartment in Nekoosa, Wisconsin, after Brooks flew into a rage over calls she’d gotten from other men, the complaint says.

Brooks had been staying with her the prior week in the small Midwestern town about two and half hours north of Milwaukee, according to court papers.

After he choked the woman, who was in her 20s, he fled. He returned the next morning at 9 a.m. and broke down her door to retrieve a large, black duffel bag he had left behind, prompting the ex-girlfriend to call the cops.

He was arrested for strangulation and suffocation, misdemeanor battery and criminal damage to property and held on a $ 5,000 cash bond, court records show. 

Five adult victims killed in the Waukesha parade attack. A sixth victim, this one a child, was announced in court Tuesday.
