TOWSON, Md. - Baltimore County police are charging a man who they say slammed a stolen landscaping truck into a Baltimore-area television station with second-degree attempted murder.

Police said Wednesday that 28-year-old Vladimir Baptiste of Parkville was charged with three counts of second-degree attempted murder.

Online court records show Baptiste also is charged with three counts of first-degree assault, burglary and other offenses. He's being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $750,000 bail.

Police say Baptiste was taken into custody after spending nearly five hours barricaded inside the WMAR-TV station in Towson, watching journalists deliver live reports from just outside the building. Police say no one, including Baptiste, was injured.
