SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- A California teen accused of stealing a celebrity chef's Lamborghini and later shooting at a couple will have to stand trial on a number of charges, including attempted murder.

A judge ruled Monday that there is enough evidence against 18-year-old Max Wade to try him on charges including attempted murder and auto theft.

Wade is accused of stealing chef Guy Fieri's $220,000 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder from a San Francisco dealership, where it had been brought for repairs, in March 2011.

Authorities say Wade later opened fire on an 18-year-old woman and her boyfriend in Mill Valley because the woman had rejected him.

Prosecutors are expected to file additional charges over allegations that Wade pulled out a gun when deputies tried to arrest him in April.

Wade has pleaded not guilty.
