The Newport man accused of crushing seven police cruisers with a tractor has posted bail. But Roger Pion, 34, will remain behind bars for the next 14 to 17 days. His lawyer says he's serving the remainder of a work crew sentence stemming from a February disorderly conduct conviction.

Tuesday, Pion pled not guilty to all 14 charges related to the alleged tractor rampage. The judge is still weighing whether Pion's attempted aggravated assault charge should be dropped due to a lack of evidence.
