"I just feel like I'm being monster - demonized," Brooks said, according to the Fox report.

Brooks previously pled not guilty to 77 charges against him, including homicide and reckless endangerment.

Six people were killed and more than 60 others were injured that day.

Six people were killed and more than 60 injured after a driver plowed an SUV into a Christmas parade crowd in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

Police said Brooks drove an SUV through a crowd at a Christmas parade last November. The lead investigator in the case previously testified that Brooks zigzagged his SUV.

Brooks is expected back in court March 29.
