A St. Louis man charged with shooting and paralyzing a Ballwin police officer in 2016 has been found mentally unfit to face trial, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The man — identified as 33-year-old Antonio Taylor — is contesting the finding by the Department of Mental Health.

Earlier this year, Taylor underwent a mental examination to determine if he suffers from mental illness and whether or not he understands the court proceedings levied against him.

Taylor was charged with assaulting a law enforcement officer, unlawful gun possession, resisting arrest and armed criminal action in connection with a 2016 traffic stop that left Ballwin Police Officer Michael Flamion paralyzed from the neck down.

Taylor’s criminal history in Missouri reportedly includes convictions for unlawful possession of a firearm and resisting arrest.

Assistant Prosecutor Jason Denney has reportedly filed a motion seeking a second mental health exam for Taylor.
