Anti-Gov't Shooting Suspect Pleads Not Guilty In California


Williams is accused of engaging in a gunbattle with police officers on I-580 while allegedly on his way to targeting the ACLU and the Tides Foundation.

He was charged with "four counts of attempted murder against a peace officer, three felony counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm and one count of being in possession of ammunition."

If convicted, Williams faces the possibility of life in prison without the chance of parole, since this charge represents his third strike under the state's Three Strikes rule.

He is due back in court on September 23.
