After landing on runway 32 at lnk, I had the left brake fail, during rollout, the tower controller requested a quick 180 degree turn back to taxiway east, traffic on short final for runway 32. My reply was I could not do that and continued to roll on runway 32 looking for a taxiway I could exit on. After turning off on taxiway B I was having difficulty steering and stopping with only the right brake and was trying to pump the left brake to restore some stopping power to that brake. During this time (in the dark) I mistakenly rolled onto runway 17R where taxiway B crosses the stopway, approach end of that runway. At that point, the pumping of the left brake restored some stopping power to that brake and became more in control of the ability to taxi. Continued on taxiway B to a point where it intersects with taxiway D where I was told to hold there by the tower controller. After some additional traffic landed on runway 32 I was cleared to taxi to the GA parking via taxiway east which I did without any further problems. I feel after thinking this over that I should have stopped straight ahead on runway 32 and have the controller send the landing traffic around. At the time of the landing I was trying too hard to comply with the controller request to clear the runway and exited going too fast for the limited brakes I had. Also, should have radioed sooner to the controller that I had a problem and would not be able to stop on taxiway B without crossing runway 17R. I also became so involved with trying to pump the left brake back to life that I was unaware that I crossed the runway until I stopped at taxiway B and taxiway D intersection. Contributing factors: darkness and ATC landing aircraft too close behind!!

Title: DURING LNDG ROLLOUT THE L BRAKE FAILED. TWR REQUESTED QUICK EXIT OFF RWY FOR LNDG TFC. IN THE RUSH WITH THE BRAKE PROB, ACFT EXITED RWY, BUT CROSSED ANOTHER RWY WITHOUT CLRNC.
Narrative: AFTER LNDG ON RWY 32 AT LNK, I HAD THE L BRAKE FAIL, DURING ROLLOUT, THE TWR CTLR REQUESTED A QUICK 180 DEG TURN BACK TO TXWY E, TFC ON SHORT FINAL FOR RWY 32. MY REPLY WAS I COULD NOT DO THAT AND CONTINUED TO ROLL ON RWY 32 LOOKING FOR A TXWY I COULD EXIT ON. AFTER TURNING OFF ON TXWY B I WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY STEERING AND STOPPING WITH ONLY THE R BRAKE AND WAS TRYING TO PUMP THE L BRAKE TO RESTORE SOME STOPPING PWR TO THAT BRAKE. DURING THIS TIME (IN THE DARK) I MISTAKENLY ROLLED ONTO RWY 17R WHERE TXWY B CROSSES THE STOPWAY, APCH END OF THAT RWY. AT THAT POINT, THE PUMPING OF THE L BRAKE RESTORED SOME STOPPING PWR TO THAT BRAKE AND BECAME MORE IN CTL OF THE ABILITY TO TAXI. CONTINUED ON TXWY B TO A POINT WHERE IT INTERSECTS WITH TXWY D WHERE I WAS TOLD TO HOLD THERE BY THE TWR CTLR. AFTER SOME ADDITIONAL TFC LANDED ON RWY 32 I WAS CLRED TO TAXI TO THE GA PARKING VIA TXWY E WHICH I DID WITHOUT ANY FURTHER PROBS. I FEEL AFTER THINKING THIS OVER THAT I SHOULD HAVE STOPPED STRAIGHT AHEAD ON RWY 32 AND HAVE THE CTLR SEND THE LNDG TFC AROUND. AT THE TIME OF THE LNDG I WAS TRYING TOO HARD TO COMPLY WITH THE CTLR REQUEST TO CLR THE RWY AND EXITED GOING TOO FAST FOR THE LIMITED BRAKES I HAD. ALSO, SHOULD HAVE RADIOED SOONER TO THE CTLR THAT I HAD A PROB AND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO STOP ON TXWY B WITHOUT CROSSING RWY 17R. I ALSO BECAME SO INVOLVED WITH TRYING TO PUMP THE L BRAKE BACK TO LIFE THAT I WAS UNAWARE THAT I CROSSED THE RWY UNTIL I STOPPED AT TXWY B AND TXWY D INTXN. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS: DARKNESS AND ATC LNDG ACFT TOO CLOSE BEHIND!!
