Witness in BART killing: 'They never struggled with me'

Says none of the officers withdrew their guns except for Mehserle

LOS ANGELES — Former BART police officer Marysol Domenici, the second police officer to arrive at the scene where Oscar Grant III eventually was killed, began her testimony today, giving the jury its first glimpse of how a prosecutor intends to attack the credibility of the officers who witnessed one of their own kill an unarmed man.

Deputy District Attorney David Stein wasted no time in attacking Domenici's testimony, immediately pointing out that statements she gave in previous hearings and interviews did not match with what was depicted in recorded scenes of the events that led to the 22-year-old Hayward man's death.
