FARGO -- A judge set bail at $500,000 cash or bond this morning for a Fargo man accused of trying to kill another man by ramming into his car before hitting him and dragging him.

Despite a defense attorney's request for a lower bail, East Central District Judge Wade Webb said the amount for Eugene Roberdin Kempers Jr. was not excessive considering the attempted murder charge and the circumstances.

Kempers is accused of intentionally plowing his sport utility vehicle into Jody Hardin's car Wednesday night in a parking lot at 1401 S. University Dr.

According to Cass County District Court documents:

Kempers smashed the rear of Hardin's car before hitting the driver's side door, crushing it into the car. He then hit Hardin as he fled the vehicle, dragging him underneath the SUV for an estimated 8 to 12 feet.
