A 38-year-old Colorado man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to nearly three dozen felony counts, including murder, related to allegedly driving his car into pedestrians on the Venice boardwalk, authorities said.
Nathan Louis Campbell, who was arraigned Tuesday afternoon at the Airport Courthouse, faces 16 counts of assault with a deadly weapon and 17 counts of hit-and-run, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
He is also charged with murder in the death of Alice Gruppioni, 32, of Italy, who was in Los Angeles on her honeymoon. At least 16 others were injured.
Bail for Campbell was set at $1.48 million. If convicted, he faces up to life prison.
Campbell is accused of driving his 2008 Dodge Avenger onto the boardwalk shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday, and witnesses said he appeared to aim the vehicle at pedestrians. Authorities said Campbell later abandoned the vehicle at Ocean Park Boulevard and Beverly Avenue and turned himself into Santa Monica police about two hours later.
