Published 14/05/2014 | 17:30
US police have charged a man with second-degree attempted murder after he allegedly slammed a stolen landscaping truck into a Baltimore-area television station
Police said that 28-year-old Vladimir Baptiste of Parkville was charged with three counts of second-degree attempted murder.
Online court records show Baptiste is also charged with three counts of first-degree assault, burglary and other offences. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Centre on 750,000 dollars (£447,000) bail.
Police said Baptiste was taken into custody after spending nearly five hours barricaded inside the WMAR-TV station in Towson, watching journalists deliver live reports from just outside the building. Police say no one, including Baptiste, was injured.
