PHOENIX (AP) - A jury has been selected in a trial of an Arizona man accused of sending his nephew into a street with a fake grenade launcher as he filmed the masked teen pointing the fake weapon at passing cars .Lawyers

are set to make opening statements Wednesday at filmmaker Michael David Turley's trial.

Jury selection was completed Tuesday.

Turley has pleaded not guilty to charges of endangerment and engaging in a criminal hoax for the July 28 incident in Phoenix.

He wasn't arrested the day of the hoax, but was booked nearly two months later after police interviewed people who called emergency services and later saw the video on YouTube.

If convicted of both charges, Turley would face penalties ranging from only probation to more than five years in prison.
