A grand jury has indicted a Vermont police officer on criminal charges connected to the shooting of a combative mentally ill man during an arrest in Winooski.

A judge says a Vermont man shot and wounded by police after allegedly assaulting two Winooski officers is not mentally competent to stand trial.

The opinion of a psychiatrist was noted Wednesday during a competency hearing for 35-year-old Isaac Sage in Burlington.

At the hearing, Judge Kevin Griffin lifted the $10,000 bail against Sage, but ordered him to remain hospitalized pending a new court order.

The Burlington Free Press reports Griffin said that he didn't want Sage in jail, but he didn't want him released into the community either.

Vermont State Police have released the name of the trooper who shot and wounded a man accused of making threats over a school bus radio in Danville.

Sgt. Brian May, a patrol commander at the St. Johnsbury barracks, remains on administrative leave, which is customary.

Suspect William Mahoney remains in stable condition at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, N.H., following the Tuesday night shooting in the Danville school parking lot.
