ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- The man who was shot by a New Mexico State Police officer Tuesday was identified as Roman Craig, according to court documents.
The officer shot Craig, who was carrying a gun, on I-25 after the suspect allegedly refused to follow commands.
Officers handcuffed Craig and provided aid to him. When asked why Craig pointed the gun at the officer, he said, "because you're a pig," according to an arrest warrant.
Craig was taken to UNM Hospital for treatment. He faces a charge of aggravated assault upon a peace officer.
