On day two of Alfonzo Dennard's trial, the jury heard testimony from witnesses who were in the area of 14th & O Streets around bar close time on April 21, the morning Dennard is accused of punching a Lincoln Police Officer and resisting arrest.

Arresting Officer Benjamin Coke took a stand and described the arrest.

In his opening statements to the jury, Defense Attorney Terry Dougherty said his client's actions were in self defense. He will admit to resisting arrest but not to willfully assaulting an officer.

The Assault of an Officer charge is a class three felony.

Dougherty says the trial should end on Friday.
