The Alfonzo Dennard assault trial is underway in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the prosecution came out swinging, putting the arresting police officer on the stand to recount his version of events on the night he cuffed the soon-to-be NFL rookie. The 23-year-old Dennard faces a felony charge of third-degree assault on an officer and two misdemeanors stemming from the incident on April 21, 2012, just days before he was selected in the 7th round by the Patriots. Officer Benjamin Kopsa, the first witness called in Lancaster County District Court, reports Leslie Reed of the Omaha World-Herald. Via the World Herald: ' Kopsa said Dennard tried to elude him after he rushed up to arrest him. Dennard backed away and said "I'm good, I'm good. I'm going home." Kopsa said he told Dennard four or five times he was under arrest and to put his arms behind his back. Three times, he grabbed Dennard's right arm to try to cuff him. On the first two tries, Dennard pulled his arm away. On the third try, Dennard used both hands to swat Kopsa's hands away. "I realized I had my hands full — and there was nobody else with me." Kopsa said he yelled for another officer to help him before turning back to Dennard and grabbing his left arm. Dennard pulled his arm away and hit the officer in his jaw with a right hook, he said. ' If Dennard is convicted, he faces a maximum jail term of 7 years and up to $12,000 in fines. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
