OWSON, Md. (AP) - A man accused of slamming a stolen truck into a television station, then spending hours watching live news footage of the scene before his arrest was charged Wednesday with second-degree attempted murder. Vladimir Baptiste, 28, of Parkville was taken into custody Tuesday 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. Baptiste is charged with three counts of second-degree attempted murder, police said. He also faces charges of first-degree assault, third- and fourth-degree burglary, malicious destruction of property and theft, online court records show. He was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $750,000 bail, and a hearing was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The commotion began around noon Tuesday, when police received 911 calls describing a man demanding to be let in and then reporting that the man had driven a massive landscaping truck into the lobby.
