Trial Set to Begin for Former Iowa Receiver

Ivory Webb was a receiver and two-time letterman at Iowa. He started the 1982 Rose Bowl and his former Hawkeye teammates include Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, Arizona coach Mike Stoops and former NFL All-Pro Andre Tippett.

Webb went on to become a sheriff's deputy in San Bernardino County, and in February 2006, he shot Air Force policeman Elio Carrion three times after a brief car chase. The incident was captured on video by a bystander, and Carrion, a passenger in the vehicle, appeared to be obeying Webb's orders before being shot.

Carrion has recovered and now Webb, who is no longer a member of the force, is about to go on trial for the shooting, with jury selection to begin Monday. Warning: video is graphic.
