Trial starts in council fracas case

GLENDALE -- Jury selection is expected to start Monday afternoon

for the trial of a Burbank man charged with the disruption of a City

Council meeting in May.

Edward Guerrero has pleaded not guilty to assaulting a police

officer and disturbance of a public meeting in connection with the

May incident during which he allegedly smacked a handful of papers

against a wall and attempted to push away an officer escorting him

out of the council room. The officer and Police Chief Thomas Hoefel

had to restrain Guerrero.

Guerrero, 45, has already been ordered to stay away from council

meetings and keep 500 yards away from city buildings, and from


William Paparian, the defense attorney, said he was going to file

a motion to have the jury visit the council chambers at City Hall to

get a better idea of where the incident took place.
