Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard testified in his own defense today at his trial for assaulting a police officer, and he said that while it was possible he hit the officer with his right arm while trying to pull away, he did not intentionally punch the officer. Kopsa testified on Tuesday that Dennard punched him in the jaw, and on Wednesday officer Jerad McBride testified that he witnessed the punch. “Once I saw Officer Kopsa get punched, I ran as absolutely fast as I could,” McBride said. According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Ben Samani, a 22-year-old student at the University of Nebraska, testified Thursday that Dennard “shouldered” him as the two crossed O Street in opposite directions as the area’s bars were letting out for the night. Initially Samani said he didn’t feel any pain, but later testified that he felt slight pain that lasted just a couple of seconds.
