PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB) – Lawyers selected a jury on Monday to hear the case of a former Panama City police officer accused of beating a suspect.

Eric Conley was fired from the Panama City Police Department last year following a confrontation with a suspect who was filmed.

In the video, Conley appeared to punch a man, named Calvin Pittman, three times in his chest, while he was handcuffed and lying on the floor.

It happened near the Chapman Early Education Center.

Conley and several other officers responded to the facility because Pittman allegedly recorded a video of children on a cell phone.

Conley was charged with battery.

The jury trial is scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
