A 31-year-old homeless man accused in an early morning rampage around Union Station in which a security guard was hurt, police cars were damaged and a Metro vehicle was stolen and crashed was charged Monday with four counts of attempted murder.
Max Verdi pleaded not guilty to those counts plus four counts of second-degree burglary of a vehicle, one count of vandalism with more than $400 in damages and an allegation that he caused great bodily injury.
Verdi, who is being held on bail of more than $4.1 million, is due back in court Feb. 8, when a date is expected to be set for a preliminary hearing to determine if there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial.
The trail of destruction began about 4:30 a.m. last Wednesday outside Union Station, according to LAPD Officer Sal Ramirez.
Two LAPD black-and-whites were parked in a lot outside the station when the suspect smashed out windows in both vehicles and then stole some property from the patrol cars, he said. Verdi then allegedly smashed a window in a private vehicle parked in the lot and stole an ice ax.
