Henry Lloyd Brooks

Deputy Sheriff Henry Brooks was struck and killed by a drunk driver while he was investigating a crime scene on I-50, east of Roebuck Parkway.

An earlier pursuit of robbery suspects had ended when the suspect vehicle crashed into a police car. Deputy Brooks was guarding the scene of the crash while waiting for a crime scene technician to arrive.

The drunk driver struck Deputy Brooks and then attempted to flee, but was apprehended a short distance away. At the time of the crash the suspect was under the influence of alcohol and tranquilizers. The original charges of homicide were reduced to manslaughter in court.

Deputy Brooks is survived by his wife and two small children.
