WINOOSKI — A Vermont man who was shot in the thigh by a Winooski police officer after a confrontation has pleaded not guilty to related charges.
A judge on Friday said 35-year-old Isaac Sage of Winooski should undergo a mental health evaluation to determine his sanity at the time of the incident and whether he is mentally competent for court proceedings.
The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/11o257L) police said Sage has been treated and released from the hospital.
Vermont state police say two officers were responding to a trespassing complaint Thursday afternoon when Sage resisted arrest and punched an officer in the face, causing a concussion and broken nose. State police say an officer used a stun gun but when it failed to subdue Sage, one of the officers fired his gun.
