A Charlottesville man shot by police during his arrest will face a jury on charges that include assaulting an officer.
A Charlottesville Circuit Court judge originally set a three-day trial starting February 10 for Josue Salinas Valdez, but the date has been continued until October 29. Salinas Valdez faces two felony and two misdemeanor charges for the May 26 incident.
Police say Salinas Valdez led them to a home on Birdwood Court after a hit-and-run and violently resisted arrest. An Albemarle County officer shot Salinas Valdez in the abdomen.
He has since recovered.
