Transient faces up to five years in jail if convicted as charged, district attorney’s office says

A man accused of attacking “Sin City” actress Jaime King’s car while her 4-year-old son was inside on Wednesday has been charged with multiple vandalism counts, as well as cruelty to a child, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Friday.

According to the district attorney, Paul Francis Floyd, 47, was charged with 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.

Floyd, a transient man, faces up to five years in jail if convicted as charged.

Floyd is accused of kicking and breaking the grill of a Lexus that was being driven on North Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills, before jumping on the hood of King’s Mercedes Benz, which was occupied by King’s son and a woman caring for him.

Floyd allegedly broke the front and rear windows of the Mercedes Benz and then threw a beer can at the woman caring for the child, according to prosecutors.

The Beverly Hills Police Department is still investigating the case.

Prosecutors are requesting that Floyd’s bail be set at $40,000.
