Final arguments in trial of man accused of attacking female police officer

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -  As of late Tuesday, both sides have rested in the trial of 29-year-old Donald Johnson.  Johnson is accused assaulting Lubbock police officer Rosa Cox, after police say he burglarized a pawn shop in June of 2007.   Cox took the stand, telling jury members Johnson hit her in the face, punched her in the head several times, and dragged her across the pavement.

Cox says she also severely injured her arm in the incident.  Despite her injuries Cox hung on to Johnson until other officers could arrive.  Cox says she spent five months off patrol, and six months in therapy after the incident.

Johnson's attorney says Cox's injuries were not as severe as she stated.  The case goes to the jury Wednesday morning.
