KAILUA-KONA — Hawaii County Councilman Kelly Greenwell is demanding a jury trial after he was arrested for speeding and resisting arrest.

The 70-year-old representing North Kona pleaded not guilty Thursday. He will go on trial Aug. 25.

Greenwell said after his court appearance "there is no way in hell" he would change his plea because he believes he's not guilty.

He said he may accept a plea bargain if its conditions included better police training.

Greenwell was arrested July 17 after police used a handheld laser to clock him traveling at 51 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Police say Greenwell failed to stop and became confrontational.
