Clifton Park man shot by officer facing charges

CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. -- A Clifton Park man recovering after being shot earlier this month by a state police officer is now facing charges.

Douglas Stewart III, 43, was arraigned Monday on a felony charge of menacing an officer.

On August 6th, troopers arrived at Stewart's Cardinal Court home on a domestic incident call. Outside, they say they found Stewart holding a loaded rifle, and a trooper fired when he did not drop the gun.

The shooting is currently under investigation.
