Jury selection began Monday in the case of a Campbell man accused of assaulting a police officer during a chase last summer.
Patrick Weaver, 24, is on trial in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court for grand theft, assault on a police officer and failing to comply with police orders.
Prosecutors said Weaver ran from Weathersfield police in a stolen car last August.
After they arrested him in Warren, he kicked out the window of a police cruiser and assaulted two officers while trying to escape custody.
The trial is expected to last about a week.
