Trial Begins For Man Caught On Tape Beating Cop

The trial has started for the Middletown man accused of beating a police officer during a traffic stop last year.

Eric German, 46, is charged with felonious assault on a police officer, impersonating a police officer and obstruction of official business.

On July 21, 2010, Officer Jason Deaton pulled him over when German got out and started fighting him. The whole incident was caught on dash cam video.

Deaton returned to work in September after undergoing reconstructive surgery.
