LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Hungarian man pleaded not guilty to multiple charges alleging he robbed a Las Vegas bank with a gun in each hand and shot his way into one home and dodged bullets fired by an armed homeowner at another before he was shot by police and arrested.

Tamas Horvath told a Nevada judge on Wednesday he understands the 10 charges in an indictment handed up by a Clark County District Court grand jury. He could face decades in state prison if he is convicted.

The 40-year-old Horvath still uses a wheelchair after bring wounded and arrested Feb. 2 in a neighborhood several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip. He’s being held on $500,000 bail.

Police say he told investigators he robbed a bank to get money to pay debts.
