Felony assault trial of off-duty Minneapolis officer to begin Monday

Posted: Updated:

The trial for a Minneapolis police officer charged with punching a man at a north metro bar is set to begin on Monday.

Sgt. David Clifford is charged with felony assault after he was caught on camera punching Brian Vander Lee at a bar in Andover last June.

Vander Lee struck his head on the concrete as well and was knocked unconscious. He had to undergo several brain surgeries after the incident.

Clifford's lawyer has argued that his client was acting in self-defense.
