Man Accused of Ramming Trooper on Trial

A Tallahassee man accused trying to kill a Florida trooper is going on trial on Tuesday.

Thirty-two-year-old Theron Sapp was arrested after a car chase in April 2004 and accused of trying to run over Florida Trooper Bill Dyer.

Investigators say Sapp fled a traffic stop, and when troopers cornered his Buick off Old Bainbridge Road he hit the accelerator and struck the trooper.

Dyer suffered minor injuries.

A jury was chosen Monday. Testimony in Sapp's trial begins Tuesday.
