And Jim Siedow as “The Cook”

Timothy Ray Brooks, 49, asked a clerk at a Brooksville, Fla., Best Western hotel what room his wife was in. According to a sheriff’s deputy, the clerk refused to provide information on hotel guests — perhaps because Mrs. Brooks was there with her boyfriend, or perhaps because Mr. Brooks was carrying a chainsaw. When the clerk heard a loud noise from the parking lot, he ran out and found his car window smashed. Witnesses say Mr. Brooks then used his fist to break a window in the boyfriend’s car, and then used the non-running chainsaw to smash through the window of his wife’s room to confront her and her beau. Brooks then punched his rival in the face three times, leaving him uninjured, and fled when the man called 911.
