Kenneth Herron, the man who somehow entered the San Francisco Zoo's Grizzly Bear Grotto last month will this morning again be in a room filled with foreboding creatures -- a local criminal court.

Pre-trail motions before Judge Wallace Douglass are scheduled to commence at 9 a.m. today, with a jury panel ordered for tomorrow morning, according to the District Attorney's office.

Herron, 21, has pleaded not guilty to a pair of charges: trespassing and the eye-catching unlawful disturbance of a wild and dangerous animal ("to wit, bears" as it appeared in writing). He remains in custody on $10,000 bail.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
