BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A man accused of intentionally crashing his car into a traffic light pole in Boulder to try to kill his girlfriend, who was in the passenger seat, has been charged with attempted murder and assault.

The Daily Camera reports (http://goo.gl/rV9Ah7 ) 51-year-old George Pappas was charged Tuesday and remains jailed on $100,000 bail.

Pappas was seriously injured in the Oct. 12 crash. His 35-year-old girlfriend, whose name has not been released, was hurt but was able to walk away from the crash.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman said Pappas reached over and unbuckled her seat belt and then began driving erratically. She was able to re-buckle before the crash.

Police say witnesses heard both Pappas and the girlfriend say that Pappas was trying to kill her.
