The trial of a Terre Haute man is underway.
Lance Barbee is accused of unlawful possession of a firearm by a violent felon.
Police say that Barbee allegedly interrupted a 2010 home invasion in which a suspect put a gun to a woman’s head and he used his own gun to chase away the intruder.
The problem is that since Barbee is a convicted felon he wasn’t supposed to have a gun. The jury trial could be wrapped up before the end of the week.
