Homeless man pleads not guilty to attack on actress’s car with her son inside in Beverly Hills
A homeless man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he endangered actress Jaime King’s son by allegedly smashing the windows of her car.
City News Service says Paul Floyd entered pleas Friday to charges of vandalism, battery and cruelty to a child by endangering health.
Beverly Hills police say King’s 4-year-old son was inside her Mercedes-Benz on Wednesday when Floyd began kicking and jumping on two cars.
Prosecutors say he jumped on the hood of the parked Mercedes, breaking the front and rear windows. The boy was hit by shattered glass but wasn’t hurt. King has said her son was terrified by the attack.
Police quickly arrived and arrested Floyd. He could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
King has appeared in the films “Pearl Harbor” and “Sin City” and has a role in the forthcoming “Ocean’s 8.”
