Man Accused Of Running Over State Trooper With Car Will Get New Lawyer

Posted: Updated:
BROOME COUNTY, N.Y. -

The man shot by police after he allegedly ran over a state trooper with his car will get a different defense lawyer. James Giacalone was being represented by public defender Mike Baker, but due to a conflict of interest, Baker is off the case and a new defense attorney will be assigned, according to the Broome County District Attorney's Office.

No trial date has been set. 

Giacalone was shot in the face after a police pursuit on Binghamton's South Side in January. The pursuit led to the corner of Conklin Ave and Alfred Street, where, police say, Giacalone backed his car down Alfred Street and into a parking lot. As troopers approached the vehicle on foot, police say the suspect suddenly accelerated forward, nearly hitting one trooper and striking a second. Authorities say that's when the trooper who was struck by the car fired his handgun, hitting Giacalone in the face.

Giacalone was airlifted to Geisinger Medical Center where he was treated until he was transported to Broome County Jail on January 14th. The trooper was treated for minor injuries and released from Wilson Hospital.
