Hello,

Police reports are inadmissible at trial, so the jury will never see the actual report. If the officer testifies on the stand consistent with his lies and his exaggerations on the report, that's what cross-examination is all about. The defense lawyer will get the opportunity to ask questions designed to discredit the police testimony.
