He faces charges in the standoff and in an additional case, including: first-degree criminal mistreatment, second-degree assault, driving under the influence of intoxicants, interfering with making a report, resisting arrest, two counts of first-degree mischief with a firearm, two counts of first-degree attempted murder related to the standoff, and two counts of unlawful use of a weapon with a firearm.

The gun involved in the case is a semi-automatic rifle.

Lane County District Attorney Patty Perlow ruled the shooting of Gardner by SWAT at the scene justified as reports showed Gardner intended to fire his weapon and officers feared for the lives of those at the scene.
