The man shot by police several times during an armed stand-off near Ngatea in October has been charged.
He is due to appear in Hamilton District Court at a date yet to be set.
The man was arrested on Monday following an investigation into the shooting.
Police were called to a Kaikahu Rd address in Kerepehi about 9.45pm on October 21.
At the time of the incident, acting Superintendent Greg Nicholls said police initially responded to a domestic violence incident which then escalated into an armed callout on a rural property.
“A 50-year-old Kerepehi man was shot by police after firing on officers after he travelled through a cordon at an intersection with SH2,” added Greg.
The man was airlifted to Waikato Hospital where he underwent surgery the morning after the shooting.
