SAN DIEGO - A Solana Beach man was arraigned Monday in federal court 
after being indicted for computer intrusion and extortion, officials 
said.

Bruce Mengler, 60, was arrested Friday after a bench warrant was issued 
for his arrest.

Authorities said he intentionally caused damage to a protected computer 
of Maserati North America and also extorted the company in early 2008.

The indictment states that Mengler hacked into the company's Web site on

identification numbers and contact information.

site and enter a unique personal identification number printed on the 
flyer in order to receive the gift certificates, officials said.
