LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Lubbock man goes on trial this week accused of breaking a police officer's arm as he was trying to break into a local business. 

Jury selection begins Monday for Donald Ray Johnson. In June of 2007, police were called to a burglary in progress at the Empire Pawn1500 50th Street.

Police said at the time, Johnson attacked police officer Rosa Cox in his attempt to get away but despite her injuries she hung on to him until other officers could arrive.  He went to jail, and she spent four months off of regular duty until her wounds could heal.
