I hope there's more to this than meets the eye, for the sake of the officer involved.

If the narrative is accurate, he was way out there. Interesting, only an aggravated assault charge.
If it is as presented in the article I am curious why the charge is not murder. They way it reads he went more than a little over the line.

WOW!! Only aggravated assault when it should be murder, criminal damage to property, negligent use of a firearm, aggravated battery. His old man must be the chief.

Where was his partner and what was he doing at the time this was happening?
Aggravated Assault!? ***..if the account is anywhere near accurate he should be away for life.
This story is getting a LOT of coverage right now, and someone's affidavit - the 'good' cop's? - has been released, and I heard part of it on the radio this afternoon.
The guy who was shot was acting violent, which is why his mother called the cops. Before his was shot, he was tased and tore the darts out, then he was pepper-sprayed with no effect. Suffice to say, the guy who the cops responded about was pretty much out of control. Whether he posed enough of a risk to invoke deadly force is the core question. One of the other stories noted that the cops had been called to this same address on several previous occasions.
I'm not necessarily supporting the cop who is charged, but none of us was there when the trouble happened, not even the news reporter. Let's all keep an open mind about what happened.

sounds like an "intial charge" to hold him for now, and will likely change to much more serious charges.... at least they should be more serious charges.

Neither story linked provides anywhere near enough info to be passing judgement.

I'll wait till I see some facts... so far it's ugly though.
