Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible in the hot and humid air this Saturday, the 4th. Same for Sunday...although NOT a wash-out either day!
NEW BRAUNFELS (August 10, 2014) A Texas trooper shot a man who was resisting arrest and reaching for the officer's gun during a traffic stop early Saturday in Guadalupe County.
The trooper pulled the man over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Jason Reyes said.
The trooper tried to arrest the man after he failed a sobriety test, but the man resisted, Reyes said.
Reyes says the trooper shot the man with a stun gun and was later forced to shoot him with his pistol after the man tried to grab the weapon.
The man was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was in critical but stable condition.
Reyes says the trooper was not injured.
The Texas Rangers are investigating the shooting.
