The man who halted the morning commute on the Bay Bridge for two hours last week and claimed to have pipebombs in his vehicle, is set to make his first court appearance today.
Authorities say the Antioch man stopped his SUV on the upper deck last Thursday morning, dialed 911 and threatened to blow up the span. Police say he also waived a pellet gun and threatened to kill himself.
His 16-year-old daughter, who was in the SUV, managed to escape during the standoff.
Carlos-Valentino ultimately surrendered. He told officers he was angry and suicidal because of marital problems.
