SAN RAFAEL, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors are calling for more charges against a Northern California teen accused of stealing celebrity chef Guy Fieri's Lamborghini and shooting at a couple.

Marin County Deputy District Attorney Yvette Martinez-Shaw said during Max Wade's preliminary hearing on Thursday that she will also ask a judge to hold Wade for trial on charges of deterring officers through threats or violence and possessing a loaded concealed weapon he did not own.

Sheriff's Detective Ryan Petersen testified that Wade reached into his waistband when authorities tried to arrest him and had to be subdued by force. He said detectives wrestled a .45-caliber pistol from him during the struggle.

Wade is already facing attempted murder, vehicle theft and other charges. He has pleaded not guilty.

Meanwhile, an investigator said video surveillance from the San Francisco dealership the Lamborghini was taken from showed another person inside, probably the janitor, when the thief rappelled down from the roof.
