Ring camera appears to show Darrell Brooks asking resident for help outside home: 'Extra nervous'
Brooks is set to make first court appearance Tuesday
Videos captured by a homeowner who lives near the scene where the Waukesha Christmas parade attack happened appear to show suspect Darrell Brooks knocking on his door prior to being arrested, asking for help hailing an Uber.
The Ring doorbell camera footage from the home of Daniel Rider – which Fox News has obtained – was recorded about 20 minutes after Brooks allegedly drove a vehicle through the parade Sunday, killing five and injuring dozens more. Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said Monday that he is referring five counts of first-degree intentional homicide against Brooks, who is expected to make his first court appearance Tuesday.
"Hey, I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting for it over here but I don’t know when it’s coming, can you call it for me please?" an individual who appears to be Brooks says in the footage after knocking on Rider’s door. "I’m homeless."

Rider said he was watching football at the time of the attack and allowed Brooks inside to let him use his phone.
"All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I'm getting extra nervous," Rider reportedly said.
The Waukesha resident said he then asked Brooks to leave – which he did – but Brooks came back a second time, claiming he left his ID inside the home, another clip shows.

Seconds later, police arrive at the doorstep to take Brooks into custody.
"Hands up! Put your hands where I can see them!" an officer yells.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa!" Brooks responds, raising his hands in the air.
In another portion of the footage, the homeowner appears to open his front door to interact with one of the responding officers.
"Hey, do you know this guy?" the officer asks.
"Absolutely not," he says.
Rider said that his neighbor was the one who called police.
Rider's girlfriend, Katrina Reigh, told Fox News Digital on Tuesday that Rider had given Brooks a jacket and a sandwich while he was inside his home.
"He was just trying to be a Good Samaritan. He said, if he had known what was going on down the block of course he never would have let him in or anything like that. Just crazy," Reigh said.

"I guess I was just kind of worried for Daniel’s safety. He was talking to the police so I couldn’t get ahold of him at first," she added. "And I had been getting texts from my parents at that point telling me what had happened at the parade and I know we live so close. I thought, ‘What are the chances that this is the guy?’ But it was."
"He was very polite to Daniel," Reigh also said, referring to the suspect. "I think Daniel said the hardest thing that he’s realizing is, that guy had just killed however many people and he was so polite, and kind of calm."
