BLADENSBURG, Md. (AP) - Bladensburg police say a man who was shot by an officer after allegedly pinning the officer with a car has been charged in the incident.

Lt. Tracy Stone said Monday that 27-year-old Dimas Guevara of Lanham has been charged with numerous offenses, including assault, hit and run and fleeing and eluding. Stone says Guevara remains hospitalized with injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening.

Police say the incident occurred early Sunday when Officer Michael Luciotti, a two-year veteran, went to a home for a report of a domestic assault. Police say Guevara fled from the officer in a car, and pinned Luciotti against a parked car. Police say Luciotti fired his service weapon, hitting Guevara.

Luciotti was treated and released and has been placed on administrative leave.
