DALLAS (AP) - Police say a Maryland man who was shot by an officer outside a Dallas airport after a domestic disturbance is being charged with aggravated assault and assault family violence.
Shawn Nicholas Diamond of Edgewood, Maryland, remained in a hospital in stable condition Saturday.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown has said the 29-year-old Diamond struck his ex-girlfriend and battered her car with a traffic cone and large landscaping rocks Friday outside the Dallas Love Field terminal. He says an officer shot Diamond after he advanced with rocks in his hands.
Diamond also has been charged with criminal mischief in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton. Police there say he caused $3,700 in damage to city-owned trees by driving recklessly and was released on bond earlier Friday after spending the night in jail.
