A federal judge ruled Friday that the city of Spokane will not pay any civil penalties levied against former Spokane Police Officer James “Jay” Olsen, who shot Shonto Pete in the head during a drunken off-duty chase in February 2007. Federal judge Edward F. Shea ruled in favor of a motion brought by Assistant City Attorney Ellen O’Hara seeking to sever the city from the case. O’Hara successfully argued that Olsen never identified himself as a police officer during the Feb. 26, 2007, chase that ended with Olsen shooting Pete in the head.
