JORDAN LUNSK is in deep doo-doo.

The Lawndale man, 39, faces charges of aggravated assault, criminal trespassing and related counts after he picked a fight Saturday with an off-duty cop over dog waste, police said.

In that incident - which took place outside the officer's house on Oakley Street near Levick, about a block from where Lunsk lives - Lunsk refused to pick up his dog's excrement from the officer's lawn, police said.

The two first exchanged heated words, then blows. When Lunsk pulled the officer's hoodie over his head and continued to pummel him, the officer pulled out his handgun and shot Lunsk in the right thigh, police said.

Lunsk was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition. He was released from police custody Sunday after posting 10 percent of $10,000 bail, according to court records. He faces a preliminary hearing March 28.

The officer has been placed on administrative duty pending the outcome of Internal Affairs' investigation, per police protocol.
