ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) -

New Jersey authorities have issued a murder warrant for a homeless hitchhiker who gained Internet and television celebrity after using a hatchet to attack a man who ran over a California utility worker.

Police said Thursday they're seeking Caleb Lawrence McGillivary in Sunday's beating death of Joseph Galfy Jr. at his home in Clark, N.J., 20 miles west of New York. McGillivary is considered armed and dangerous.

The 24-year-old McGillivary gamed fame online as "Kai the Hatchet Wielding Hitchhiker" for his intervention in a Feb. 1 attack in Fresno, Calif.

McGillivary was riding with a man who drove into a utility worker. The Fresno Bee reported that McGallivary pulled a hatchet from his backpack and struck the driver in the head after he confronted the Pacific Gas & Electric worker.
