(WTOL) - Motorcyclist Michael McCloskey takes the stand Tuesday in the trial of Ottawa Hills police officer Thomas White.

White is accused of using excessive force when shooting the 24-year-old motorcyclist, who is now paralyzed.

On Monday, dashcam video from White's cruiser was shown in court.

White's attorney says McCloskey and his friend were driving erratically and that White saw McCloskey reach for something at his side, which he thought was a gun.

Investigators found a boot knife on McCloskey, but no gun.
