North Miami police officer Jonathan Aledda will face criminal charges for allegedly shooting Charles Kinsey, the unarmed caretaker of an autistic man, last July. The shooting was captured on video by a bystander and showed Kinsey lying on his back on the ground with his hands up in the air before he was shot by Aledda.
Aledda, 30, was arrested yesterday and charged with attempted manslaughter and a misdemeanor charge of culpable negligence. He was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and was reportedly released on bail later in the day. News sources did not name an attorney for Aledda.
