Spokane Police Officer Wanted
SPOKANE — Prosecutors are asking a superior court judge to issue an arrest warrant for a suspended Spokane police officer.
Officer Jay Olsen has failed to comply with the conditions of his release and prosecutors want his $25,0000 bond revoked.
Olsen has failed to remain in contact with his attorney and is now missing.
Olsen is suspended and is scheduled to stand trial in November on charges of first degree assault and reckless endangerment.
Detectives say on February 26, 2007 Olsen was legally drunk at the time he chased Shonto Pete, a man he accused of stealing his car. Pete was later acquitted of auto theft.
A judge will make a decision about the warrant on Thursday.
