Beating trial continues for former police officers

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The trial of two former Birmingham police officers continues Friday.

On Thursday in court, jurors were shown three different angles of the police chase and beating that led to the unreasonable force charges against David Doran and Barrett Dewitt.

Defense attorneys say it is important to consider all events leading up to the incident and not just the beating.

In two of the recordings, the suspect, Anthony Warren, is thrown from the car. One of the recordings also shows Doran putting his foot on warren's neck after he was arrested. In another, Dewitt is seen receiving congratulatory handshakes after the crash.
