A man accused of crashing his minivan into a glass-walled Chicago TV studio during the station's late news Sunday is behind bars facing multiple felony charges.
At a Christmas Day court hearing, the judge set bond at $125,000 for 25-year-old Gerald Richardson. He's charged with criminal damage to property, resisting arrest, reckless driving and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.
No one was injured when police say the van he was driving slammed through the glass wall into the WLS-TV studio. The crash was heard on the air and the news anchor was visibly startled during the newscast.
Richardson's attorney says her client has a history of mental health problems.
Prosecutors claim the man "wanted to be on the news."
