A Baytown police officer today went back on trial over accusations of beating up a suspect. Jon Fitzgerald faces a charge of official oppression. His first trial ended with a hung jury.

On Monday, an officer demonstrated how he saw Fitzgerald bashing a chase suspect's head into a concrete curb several times. The officer said he later confronted Fitzgerald at the police station, and Fitzgerald denied doing anything wrong.
