INDICE DE GALERIAS
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A man who police say crashed his car through a Wal-Mart store in California on Easter Sunday and then attacked shoppers was charged Thursday with two counts of attempted murder.
Haamid Ade Zaid was also charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon; two counts of felony vandalism; three misdemeanor counts of hit and run; and one misdemeanor count of reckless driving.
He did not enter a plea during his arraignment in Santa Clara County Superior Court, according to the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/XTRPq8).
Prosecutors say one of the assault charges stems from an incident in December when Zaid crashed his car into a gas station after fleeing a collision.
Police say Zaid was on drugs when he crashed into the Wal-Mart in San Jose on Sunday, got out of the car and began swinging a metal club.
Zaid hit four people in the Wal-Mart, including a 61-year-old employee who had to be hospitalized with head injuries, police said.
He was eventually subdued by bystanders, who tied him up until police arrived.
Zaid, who the newspaper said was born Adrian Joseph Locke, is being held without bail.
His attorney, Victor Vertner, said the charges are off-base and his client was overcharged by prosecutors.
