LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A federal trial is underway for Hillview Police Chief Glenn Caple.

Chief Caple is accused of lying to FBI officials.

The indictment states Caple told officers to move a mobile meth lab out of Mayor James Eadens' yard in Jan. 2012.

In court on Tuesday afternoon, Officer James Scott Barrow was called to the stand.

Barrow went to the Bullitt County Sheriff's Office and FBI about the alleged crime.

He later filed a lawsuit, claiming he was punished by superiors after speaking with federal investigators.

Chief Caple has pleaded not guilty. He remains on the job for now.
