A judge escorted by a Sonoma County Sheriff's Deputy arrived at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital for the arraignment of 32-year-old Koffi, an engineer at YouTube.

Investigators say Koffi and friends rented a home in Bodega Bay over the July 4th holiday. When it came time to party, Sheriff's Deputies say Koffi took four times as much acid as his friends and became violent, attacking his friends, then leaving the house where he stabbed a security guard with a landscape light, stole a truck, hit three pedestrians before being shot at least three times by a sheriff's deputy, after Koffi allegedly tried to drive into a CHP car.

"It sounds like someone who took LSD, had a bad trip if you will and reacted. But I haven't had a conversation with him, about what went through his mind or what he remembers," said Koffi's attorney Steve Gallenson.
