BANGOR - The Edinburg man who was shot after allegedly threatening a trooper with a meat cleaver last summer took the stand today in his own defense.
55 year old Warren Dome is accused of threatening police with a dangerous weapon stemming from an incident last August.
On the stand in the second day of his jury trial at Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor, Dome said he didn't remember much of what happened prior to getting shot in the thigh and groin area.
His defense argued that Dome suffered PTSD after serving ten years in the military, and that he ran out of medication one week prior to the incident.
Multiple troopers from the Maine State Police also took the stand to rehash what happened during the incident, including what happened before and after Trooper Christopher Hashey pulled the trigger.
Trooper testimony revealed that Hashey was defending himself because he was afraid.
Proceedings are still underway.
Clay was hired by WVII/WFVX as a morning anchor for FOX BANGOR's 7AM News Hour and as reporter for the 6,10 & 11 o’clock news in July 2011.
He graduated from Indiana University in Bloomington where he received his B.A. in Journalism. Clay has worked at Fox National News in New York, WTIU in Indianapolis and the Big Ten Network.
In his free time, Clay is a firefighter for the Holden Fire/Rescue Department in Holden and is an avid hockey fan.
