California jury finds man insane in utility worker attack made famous by hitchhiker Kai

A California jury has found a man insane in a 2012 attack on a Pacific Gas & Electric crew that gained national attention because of the hatchet-wielding hitchhiker who said he intervened in the attack.

Caleb McGillivary gained Internet fame as "Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker" after he gave an interview in which he said he used the hatchet to fend off a further attack by the suspect, Jett McBride.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1b8BqQv) a jury on Thursday found McBride insane when he drove his car into the utility crew in Fresno. The jury previously convicted him of assault with a deadly weapon.

McBride testified that he thought he was Jesus Christ. His attorney says McBride will likely be sent to a state hospital.

McGillivary, meanwhile, has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in New Jersey.
