OLATHE, Kan. -- A man charged in an Overland Park shooting has tested positive for the drug found in marijuana.

Isaac Vano, 24, faces an aggravated assault charge after being accused of shooting Addison Roberts, 27, in May.

Court records say Vano claimed to shoot Roberts accidentally because he was trespassing. A family spokesman says Roberts is still recovering in a local intensive care unit.

Vano, the son of a Johnson County judge, is on home-incarceration after posting $100,000 bond. He's required to wear an ankle bracelet.

A monitor asked Vano where he was during Monday's hearing and he replied in court.

In court, it was also revealed Vano had a daughter born on June 2 at the same hospital where Roberts is recovering.

Vano's attorney asked to get his client off home incarceration so he could go back to work.

But the judge denied that request because Vano tested positive for THC, the drug found in marijuana.

The judge said Vano would have to test negative for THC three straight times before he would release him from home incarceration.

Vano is due back in court for a preliminary hearing in August.
