The man injured during a shootout with Crawford County deputies on Monday has been released from the hospital.
After his release, Rickey Eugene Smithey Jr. was booked into Crawford County jail and charged with three counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer, according to a sheriff's office news release.
Smithey is awaiting his first court appearance.
Crawford deputies were called to Racers Gas Station at the corner of Olive Grove Church Road and Hwy 80 at about 7:53 p.m. after a 911 call about a disturbance involving Smithey, the news release states.
Deputies encountered Smithey and during a confrontation with him, Smithey took a semi-automatic pistol out of his pocket several times.
The deputy ordered Smithey to keep his hands off of the pistol and the suspect did not comply, according to the news release.
