Jury Being Seated in Officer Assault

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.
