Man Accused Of Crashing Into Chicago News Studio Faces Multiple Charges

A man accused of crashing his minivan into a Chicago TV studio during the station's late news on Dec. 23 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 TV studio.

Richardson's attorney says her client has a history of mental health problems.

Prosecutors claim the man "wanted to be on the news."
