A man accused of attacking a Valley PG&E worker could face up to 17 years in prison because of some new allegations.

Prosecutors now accuse Jett McBride of using his car as a weapon last month in the attempted murder of Rayshawn Neely.

They also added a new allegation in the alleged assault on another PG&E worker.

McBride's case got national attention when Kai the Hitchhiker told the story of how he initially broke up the attack with his hatchet.

Neely is still in a wheelchair and recovering from his injuries.

Other PG&E workers eventually chased Kai away and subdued McBride until police arrived.
