Daniel James Smith, 22, of Moose Jaw, made a brief appearance in Provincial Court Friday for a scheduled bail assessment hearing.
The Crown opposed Smith’s release and his legal counsel, Merv Shaw requested a publication ban on evidence at the bail hearing, which was granted by Judge Margaret Gordon.
Smith is being held in the medical wing of the corrections facility in Regina.
The charge against Smith alleges on Aug. 13, Smith was involved in a hit and run at the intersection of Fifth Avenue Northwest at Hall Street West, which police suspect might have been a case of mistaken identity.
A-30-day mental assessment was ordered for Smith and performed in North Battleford.
Along with the attempted murder charge, Smith is also facing charges for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and possession of a prohibited weapon.
Smith’s next court date is set for Sept. 26.
