A nephew of the suspect in the deadly Wisconsin Christmas parade rampage pleaded for a judge to slap the ex-con with a no-contact order after he shot at him in a fight over a cellphone in 2020, according to a report.

Anaji Brooks said in a victim impact statement that the incident involving Darrell Brooks in July that year had affected him "more so emotionally than physically," the Daily Mail reported.

"It made me come to the conclusion that this man wasn't family or kin to me," Anaji said in the handwritten note, which was filed in September 2021, according to the news outlet.

"Family shouldn't hurt family the way he did. It has brought my trust in people to become very low than it already has," added Anaji, who lived in the same house in Milwaukee's Arlington Heights area as his uncle, the report said.

The nephew told the outlet that he could not discuss Brooks' case.

According to records, Brooks had a pending assault case from July 2020 — in which he was released in March when his $7,500 bail was dropped to just $500.
