MESQUITE (CBSDFW.COM) – A Dallas County jury will resume deliberations Monday morning in the aggravated assault retrial for former Mesquite officer Derick Wiley.

“I thought I was out there by myself. Can’t get on the radio. 4-5-4 hadn’t showed up. I thought I was by myself,” Wiley said on the stand.
