BEVERLY HILLS—The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced on Friday, April 6 that 47-year-old transient Paul Floyd was charged with vandalizing two cars in Beverly Hills, one of them with a child inside. Floyd faces one felony count of vandalism with over $400 of damage and one misdemeanor count each of vandalism under $400 with priors, cruelty to a child by endangering health and battery.
On Wednesday, April 4, Floyd reportedly kicked and broke the grill of a Lexus being driven on the 400 block of North Bedford Drive, prosecutors noted. The defendant allegedly jumped on top of the hood of a parked Mercedes Benz owned by actress Jaime King, while her 4-year-old son, James and a woman caring for the boy were inside the vehicle. The child was hit with glass during the incident. King was not inside the vehicle at the time the incident transpired.
The suspect allegedly broke the front and rear windows of the Mercedes Benz and threw a beer can at the woman caring for the child after she confronted the suspect about his actions. If convicted as charged, Floyd could face a possible maximum sentence of five years in jail. Prosecutors are requesting bail be set at $40,000. The case is still under investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
King is known for her role on the CW series “Hart of Dixie.” She also starred in the films “My Bloody Valentine,” “Mother’s Day,” “Sin City” and “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.”
