Ariel Acosta Pleads Not Guilty

The man who attempted to run over a state trooper last week was in front of a court; when the charges came up for attempted murder, the man pleaded not guilty, reported a local paper.

Ariel Acosta, 26-year-old, was caught with illicit drugs in his pocket as well as inside his vehicle, the same one he tried to use as a weapon; and is on a $500,000 dollar bail.

The case has been referred to a grand jury.
