BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of trying to hit a police officer with his vehicle in North Dakota and then fleeing to South Dakota has pleaded not guilty to felony counts of attempted murder and fleeing an officer.

He later turned himself in at a gas station in Brookings, South Dakota.

The Bismarck Tribune reports Villalobos-Alvarado waived his preliminary hearing set for Monday and pleaded not guilty.

He remains jailed in Bismarck. His bond is set at $500,000 cash.
