SMYRNA, Del. (WBOC/AP)- A man shot by a Delaware State Police trooper last month is now facing a variety of charges relating to the shooting and incidents of theft, shoplifting and burglary.

State police said 42-year-old Keith M. Schueller of Rehoboth Beach was formally charged Wednesday. Schueller has been released from the hospital and is being held on $53,000 bond.

He was shot on Feb. 19 after police say he swung a shovel at a trooper. The trooper had tried to arrest Schueller on active warrants. He faces charges including possession of a deadly weapon during a felony for his alleged actions on the day of the shooting.
