(HOUSTON) -- Drug charges have been filed against a man shot by police early Thursday when he allegedly refused an officer's orders to show his hands and pulled a box cutter from his pocket.

Lee Arthur Johnson, 34, of the 6300 block of Ezzard Charles Lane, is charged with possession of cocaine. He will be jailed after his release from Ben Taub Hospital, where he is being treated for a gunshot wound to the leg. He was in fair condition Thursday afternoon.

Johnson was shot by Houston police officer Jason Alderete, 25, about 12:40 a.m. Thursday in the 2400 block of Delano.
