Burlingame Man Pleads Not Guilty to Assault Charge

The man is accused of shooting at two men with a nail gun.

A Burlingame man accused of assaulting laborers at a construction site on Thanksgiving Day pleaded not guilty to the charges late last week.

According to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office, Michael Timothy McHenry, 38, approached two workers at around 1:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day who were working on a fence. McHenry requested the pair stop making noise, but they continued with their task.

The victims then heard a nail gun and saw that McHenry was shooting the gun at their truck before firing nails at the workers themselves.

The District Attorney’s office said three nails were shot, but all missed the two laborers.

McHenry was arrested on the 1500 block of Cypress Avenue in Burlingame for felony assault, as well as an arrest warrant for misdemeanor threats out of San Carlos.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 6 at 2p.m. McHenry remains in custody on $50,000 bail.
