Suspect Wants $20 Million

Keith Clayton Brooks Jr. is looking for $20 Million and charges against him dropped. Brooks and an accomplice were burglarizing a home on the south end of town last October when deputies showed up on the scene. A shot was fired at the deputies who then returned fire, wounding Brooks. The article doesnt make clear if Brooks or his accomplice was the one doing the shooting. Brooks as much as admits his crime by his statement "I ultimately became a victim."

What is this? While I support clogging the court system (fight your traffic tickets people) this is ridiculous. No doubt it will be thrown out.
