A $10,000 bond was set Friday for a Pine Bluff man accused of entering a restricted area at Planters Oil Mill and trying to hit an employe with a vehicle.


Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Travis Payton, 33, with aggravated assault.

Reading from an affidavit by Detective Sgt. Keith Banks, Deputy Prosecutor Brittaney Akel explained the allegation against Payton.


Payton was ordered to have no contact with the victim and told to come back to court July 22.
