SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – A Clifton Park man was indicted by a Grand Jury for allegedly menacing a New York State Police Officer on Wednesday.
Douglas Stewart III, 43, was indicted on One Count of Menacing a Police Officer and three counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon.
Stewart is accused of intentionally causing a police officer to fear physical injury or death by displaying a rifle while the officer was on duty. The officer shot Stewart because he felt threatened after Stewart was told to drop his weapon.
The police officer was responding to a call about a domestic incident.
The incident took place at Stewart's home on August 6, 2013.
He was originally arraigned in Clifton Park Town Court where he posted $50,000 bond. Stewart was then brought to the Saratoga Hospital for treatment. He also surrendered his passport.
An arraignment date has not been scheduled.
