LONDON (AP) -- Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has shouted at a policeman during his tax evasion trial after taking the stand.

Midway through questioning at Southwark Crown Court on Wednesday, Redknapp held his hands up and looked around at Detective Inspector Dave Manley.

Redknapp said: "Mr. Manley, will you please stop staring at me. I know you are trying to cause me a problem, OK."

Redknapp apologized to Judge Anthony Leonard for the interruption before his questioning resumed.

Redknapp and his former chairman at Portsmouth, Milan Mandaric, deny two counts of cheating the public revenue at times between 2002 and 2008 while they were working together.

Redknapp is accused of using a bank account in Monaco to stash $295,000 of transfer bonuses from Mandaric.
