Jury selection for Montrice Bolden case set for today

Arrest sparked a U.S. Department of Justice investigation

ERIE, Pa. - Jury selection for Montrice Bolden is set to begin today.

Bolden is charged with aggravated assault - among other charges - following an arrest in June of last year.

During the incident outside of TJ's traffic jam at East 12th and Wayne streets, police say Bolden tried to run.

Once he was caught, he allegedly reached for an officer's gun, and was tazed twice by officers.

The arrest sparked a U.S. Department of Justice investigation, but no civil rights charges were filed against the officers involved.

Jury selection for Bolden is scheduled to begin at 9:30 this morning.
