The trial for a Newark police detective accused of beating up a teenager outside an apartment will continue Wednesday.

Angel Pared is charged with excessive force and falsifying police reports to cover up the action.

The alleged assault was caught on a camera. The video appears to show Travis Rattrey being approached by the officer and pushed into a window before being tackled to the ground. The teenager will also appear in court as a result of the incident.
