Stop or I'll shoot!

Deputy shoots fleeing assault suspect in leg

A Bexar County sheriff's deputy shot and seriously injured a man early Saturday, authorities said.

Deputy Joseph Saenz, who was off-duty and working as a security guard at the Las Villas de Merida Apartments in the 1700 block of South Hamilton, was trying to resolve a disturbance about 12:40 a.m. when he shot 22-year-old Ronnie Regalato in his left leg, according to a news release issued by the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

Regalato was charged with assault on a public servant and had two felony warrants on charges of assault bodily injury-family, with total bond set at $85,000.
