Man pleads not guilty in high-speed test-drive case

Mikhail Bukham, 21, of San Bruno, pleaded not guilty to charges that on June 10, he entered Cammisa Motors on Carolan Avenue in Burlingame, requested to take a BMW for a test drive and proceeded to go on a road rampage, reaching speeds of 120 mph on U.S. Highway 101.

The car dealer in the car with him was described as “scared for his life.”

Responding to the dealer’s calls, San Mateo police arrested Bukham on Second Avenue. Bukham’s jury trial was scheduled for Nov. 13. He has posted $50,000 bail.
