ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A man shot Saturday by a Juneau police officer has been released from a Seattle hospital.

Juneau police say 38-year-old Jeremie Tinney was treated at Harborview Medical Center, released Sunday and arrested on a Washington state warrant.

The charges include assault on a child, harassment and a probation violation.

Juneau police say Tinney just before 1 a.m. Saturday was driving a sport utility vehicle that fled from an officer.

More than three hours later, police found the SUV crashed.

Responding officers told dispatchers the driver had barricaded himself inside, and within one minute of arriving, reported an officer had shot the driver.

At a weekend press conference, Chief Bryce Johnson said the driver wasn’t armed.

Police Monday said Sgt. Chris Gifford, a 16-year department veteran, fired one shot.

The investigation continues.
