Jury selection began on Wednesday for the case of Anthony Arevalos, an ex-cop who has been under fire for mistreating women while on duty.

Once a jury is seated, opening statements could begin as early as Wednesday afternoon.

Arevalos is accused of trying to elicit sexual favors from several women after he stopped them for alleged drunken driving violations in the Gaslamp Quarter on duty.

During the pretrial, a woman claimed she was given three breathalyzer tests and offered a deal to get out of a DUI - hand over her panties and the paperwork would disappear. Several other women testified they were asked about boyfriends, breast implants, wet T-shirt contests and pubic hair when stopped by Arevalos.

The 18-year veteran of the San Diego police department has pleaded not guilty to the charges, and is free on bail.
