Man shot by trooper in Hanover headed to court

Posted: Updated:

A man shot by a state police trooper in Hanover last month is headed to court on assault and drug charges.

Joshua M. Harding, 30, waived his preliminary hearing before a district judge Oct. 24 and allowed all charges to proceed to York County Court, according to court documents.

Harding was inside an E. Middle Street apartment on Sept. 23 while police were serving drug warrants on a man and woman who lived there, and allegedly started a fight in which he struck a trooper in the head and body multiple times.

Police said he overpowered the trooper and took him to the ground several times before the trooper fired a single round that struck Harding in the chest.

Harding was jailed in York County Prison on $150,000 cash bail after his release from York Hospital. He was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, escape and possession with intent to deliver.

The trooper was treated and released from a hospital for injuries to his head, face and hand.
