Man who damaged actress’ car with child inside pleads no contest
Paul Francis Floyd entered a no contest plea on Oct. 12 to one felony count of vandalism and one misdemeanor count each of cruelty to a child by endangering health and battery in Beverly Hills. One of the vehicles Floyd damaged had a child inside.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Verastegui sentenced Floyd, 48, to three years of formal probation and 189 days in jail for time served. The judge also ordered Floyd to attend at least one year in a residential mental illness and drug rehabilitation program for veterans, and to pay restitution.
On April 4, Floyd jumped on top of the hood of a parked car owned by actress Jaime King, known for a role in the film “Sin City,” while her 4-year-old son and a woman caring for the boy were inside. The attack occurred in the 400 block of North Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills.
Floyd broke the front and rear windows of the vehicle and threw a bottle at the woman caring for the child, injuring her arm. Police arrived minutes later and arrested Floyd, who authorities said was a transient at the time.
The defendant also was accused of vandalizing another car on April and a motorcycle two months earlier in West Hollywood. The Beverly Hills Police Department investigated the case.
