Moscow man charged with WSU vehicle assault

PULLMAN, Wash. - An Idaho man accused of striking two Washington State University students with his car has been charged with two counts of vehicular assault and two counts of hit-and-run.
     
Daniel Noble, 31, was also charged Wednesday with one count of resisting arrest during a bizarre court appearance.
     
The two victims of Monday's incident are Neil Waldbjorn, 19, from Malaga, Washington and Hogun Hahm, 23, from Pullman.

Both were listed in satisfactory condition at Pullman Regional Hospital, spokesman Josh Harman said. According to court documents, each suffered a broken leg.

Lawyer: 'caffeine psychosis' may have led to driver's strange behavior

The Idaho motorist charged with striking down two pedestrians on the Washington State University campus may be suffering from "caffeine psychosis."

The lawyer for Dan Noble, 31, of Moscow, said his client was known to consume large amounts of energy drinks and Starbucks coffee.
     
Attorney Mark Moorer told Whitman County Superior Judge David Frazier on Tuesday that the caffeine could have accounted for Noble's strange behavior.
     
Frazier ordered Noble held without bail until his mental state can be evaluated.
