Eau Claire (WQOW) - Tyler Holte, the man who was shot by Eau Claire Police this past spring, was in court Thursday.
The 25 year old appeared for the first time since the shooting. His arm was in a sling and he had a walking cane. The judge decided to push Holte's criminal case back to August 18th for two reasons. The first, is because is Holte is still healing from injuries he sustained in that shooting. The second, is because the Department of Correction's still hasn't decided what to do about his probation, if he violated it, which is a separate matter from the police shooting. Holte was also facing charges of bail jumping and battery before the shooting.
The April shooting happened after a family member told police where Holte was, so he could be taken into custody because of an outstanding warrant. When officers found Holte, they say he led them on a high speed chase in a stolen car. They later found Holte hiding in the woods near the VFW on Starr Avenue.
That's where police say a confrontation occurred, and an officer shot and wounded Holte, who was unarmed. Police later said they believed Holte was armed based on information they were given.
