SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man accused of jumping behind the wheel of a police cruiser and hitting a San Diego police officer was in court Friday. 

Prosecutors say officer Jeffrey Swett was investigating a burglary in Barrio Logan in January when William Bogard ran him over. Officer Swett suffered multiple broken bones and significant head injuries.

Bogard has pleaded not guilty. Now, a judge will decide if there is enough evidence for a trial.

Bogard faces 19 years to life. The preliminary hearing will continue Monday.

CBS News 8's Angie Lee files the above video report from downtown San Diego with details on Friday's preliminary hearing.
