A trial begins this week for a man accused of beating a Trussville police officer. Jury selection is underway in the case against Luther Glenn.
Investigators say Glenn broke the jaw of officer Dennis Reid. Luther apparently stole his wallet, his gun, and his patrol car.
It happened in March 2011 when the officer was checking on a report of a suspicious person walking down the road carrying a television.
Glenn is charged with Attempted Murder and Robbery.
City workers say they were fired for no reason.
