Man charged with throwing hammer at BART picketer

Vincent Matteucci

A San Francisco man is charged with throwing a hammer at picketing BART workers Monday morning outside the Daly City station as his friend yelled at the strikers to “get your asses back to work,” according to prosecutors.

The hammer allegedly thrown by Vincent Matteucci, 39, landed about 15 feet away from the Bay Area Rapid Transit workers, said District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

The workers called BART police to report the incident and said they thought Matteucci had a knife. Matteucci, who had walked away but was located nearby, told responding officers he threw the hammer in self-defense to keep the workers away because he was scared. Inside his pocket was a wood-handled straight pick which he reportedly called his “whittler.”

Matteucci, who is unemployed, was taken into custody and appeared in court yesterday on felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and possessing a dirk or dagger and a misdemeanor count of brandishing a knife. He pleaded not guilty and asked for a court-appointed attorney. He returns to court Nov. 4 for a preliminary hearing and remains in custody in lieu of $25,000 bail.
