Former New Deal Police Chief Sam Butler had his second day in a Lubbock court Tuesday relating to a charge of aggravated perjury.

Municipal Judge Sharon Trumbull testified about New Deal's city vehicle policy that does not allow New Deal vehicles outside the city limits. Captain Antonio Menchaca with the Lubbock Sherriff's Office was the last to testify. He said he does not recall Butler chasing after a drug dealer or talking with butler around the time of the wreck.

Butler is accused of lying under oath about an accident in April of 2005. He says he got into an accident at 50th and Boston, in Lubbock, while following a suspected drug dealer. If so, the accident would be covered by New Deal's insurance policy. But, prosecutors say he was not on duty and was in Lubbock to fill a prescription.

The trial continues Wednesday.
