In the April 21 incident, a man hit a 13-year-old Portola Valley boy on the shoulder with a baseball bat after being discovered at about 10 p.m. rummaging through a vehicle belonging to the boy's father, deputies said.
The man allegedly fled in another vehicle, encountered sheriff's deputies on Westridge Drive and a car chase ensued. After the vehicle plunged down an embankment, the man was arrested.
Deputies found about 129 pieces of mail from 18 local addresses in the vehicle, according to prosecutors.
Three charges of vandalism and a charge of robbery were dismissed by the judge for lack of evidence, prosecutors said.
