FORT WAYNE – An Allen Superior Court jury heard opening statements and a few witnesses Tuesday during the first day of Vincent Castaneda's trial.
Castaneda, 44, was shot by police March 17, 2012, after he eluded officers with a vehicle reported stolen and then physically fought with them inside his kitchen, police said.
Castaneda faces felony charges of disarming a law enforcement officer and resisting law enforcement.
After Fort Wayne police officer Jason Crowder used a stun gun to subdue him, Castaneda took the Taser from the officer. Crowder then shot Castaneda in the abdomen with his handgun, police said.
The trial is expected to last until Thursday.
Originally out on bond while the case progressed, Castaneda's bond was revoked by a judge earlier this month.
He has multiple prior convictions for resisting law enforcement and drug possession, according to court records.
