Judge strikes detective statements on Zimmerman

• AP
A prosecutor in George Zimmerman's murder trial on Tuesday tried to pick apart the statements of a Sanford Police detective who had been called as a prosecution witness a day before but gave testimony that seemed to benefit the defense.
Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda began by asking the judge to strike from the record a statement Detective Chris Serino made Monday in which he said he found credible Zimmerman's account of how he got into a fight with Trayvon Martin.  [Gosh, I thought he was a prosecution's expert witness discussing the veracity of Zimmerman that he had interviewed who's taped interviews by this detective were being played for the jury?]
