TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office says a 66-year-old man accused of a drunken-driving rampage in the Palos Verdes area last year has pleaded not guilty to numerous charges.

William Thomas Kelly was arraigned Tuesday on 10 felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon, two felony counts of criminal threats; and one felony count each of DUI causing injury and vandalism over $400. He also faces six misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run driving.

Prosecutors allege that on Sept. 26, 2013, Kelly ran a cyclist off a road, and when the cyclist yelled at him, Kelly backed his car over the bike and nearly struck the victim. Kelly is accused of then crashing into other cars and aiming his vehicle at other victims before crashing through several fences.
