BISMARCK, N.D. — Bond has been set at $500,000 for a man accused of trying to hit a police officer with his vehicle in North Dakota.

Twenty-two-year-old Ulises Villalobos-Alvarado appeared in court Monday on felony charges of attempted murder and fleeing a peace officer. He said he would accept a public defender for now but will eventually seek his own attorney.

Villalobos-Alvarado is accused of trying to run over a Bismarck officer who subsequently shot him in the arm. The incident happened Jan. 18 as police and probation officers were conducting a probation search Jan. 18. He later turned himself in at a gas station in Brookings, South Dakota.

He waived extradition and was returned to North Dakota on Friday to face the charges.
