The trial has started for a man charged with assaulting a highway patrolman last March, then leading searchers on a manhunt that lasted 26 hours. The prosecutor says the trooper was trying to arrest Michael Thomas and a woman with him when Thomas grabbed for his gun. The charges say Thomas was able to grab the troopers metal baton and hit him five times before he ran into some woods. Thomas’ lawyer says somebody else did it.
