    BURLINGTON A grand jury is being convened in Vermont state court to determine whether criminal charges should be filed against a police officer who shot a mentally ill man while arresting him following an assault in April.

    Winooski Police Chief Steve McQueen said he learned about the grand jury from his employee, Cpl. Jason Nokes, who received a concussion and a broken nose when he was struck by Isaac Sage during the arrest.

    Sage was shot in the leg April 25 after shocks from a stun gun failed to subdue him. He spent three days in jail before being hospitalized.

    A psychiatrist says Sage suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and that he was insane during the alleged assaults.

    Prosecutors dismissed the charges.
