Man Shot by Police Faces Home Invasion and Sexual Assault Charges


A man who was shot by a Springfield cop faces multiple charges, including home invasion and sexual assault.

 

37-year-old Antonio Florence was shot in the hip by an officer who responded to a “dropped” 9-1-1 call late last week.

 

The State Journal-Register reports Florence is alleged to have shoved the responding officer to the ground, hitting him and even biting him on the face.

 

Springfield Police Chief Kenny Winslow says that it appears the unidentified officer followed proper procedure.

 

In 2003, Florence was sentenced to 12 years for hijacking a car at gun point.
