A 47-year-old transient was charged today with vandalizing two cars in Beverly Hills, one of them with a child inside, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Paul Francis Floyd (dob 7/22/70) faces one felony count of vandalism with over $400 of damage and one misdemeanor count each of vandalism under $400 with priors, cruelty to a child by endangering health and battery.

Arraignment in case SA097733 is scheduled for today in Department W30 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch.

On April 4, Floyd reportedly kicked and broke the grill of a Lexus being driven on the 400 block of North Bedford Drive, prosecutors said. The defendant then allegedly jumped on top of the hood of a parked Mercedes Benz owned by actress Jamie King while her 4-year-old son and a woman caring for the boy were inside, prosecutors added.

Floyd allegedly broke the front and rear windows of the Mercedes Benz and then threw a beer can at the woman caring for the child, prosecutors said.

If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a possible maximum sentence of five years in jail. Prosecutors are requesting bail be set at $40,000.

The case remains under investigation by the Beverly Hills Police Department.
