PITTSFIELD — The city man accused of robbing Berkshire Bank on Wednesday will be held without bail until a Dec. 6 dangerousness hearing after he refused to appear in court for his arraignment. 

Louis Hoffman, 32, declined to speak with his legal counsel and wouldn't leave his cell when bailiffs told him it was time to appear for his arraignment on Thursday morning in Pittsfield District Court.
