Nampa police, who are investigating the officer-involved shooting of a Caldwell man late Sunday night, on Wednesday released that man's name, the charges against him and some information about the officers involved in the incident.
Clifford O. Carter Jr., 40, had been hospitalized for his injuries but was booked into the Ada County Jail about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said in a 9:37 p.m. news release.
Carter is charged with three felonies: attempted strangulation, aggravated assault and domestic battery with traumatic injury in front of a child, police said. He also faces misdemeanor charges of DUI, intentional destruction of a telecommunications device and malicious injury to property.
Police said Monday that an officer was responding to a domestic disturbance call about 11:30 p.m. in the 700 block of North Indiana Avenue when a resident of the home sped toward one of the officers, who thought the driver was trying to hit him and fired his weapon. The car then hit another police vehicle that had arrived at the scene.
In Wednesday's news release, Nampa police said the three Caldwell officers involved in the incident all hold the rank of specialist and have been with the department for 1, 8 and 9 years. They were placed on paid administrative leave.
Nampa police are serving as the lead agency in a Critical Incident Task Force investigation of the shooting.
