The lights on top of the vehicle would usually blaze in approval and move on, into the garage and back to work.

County settles with robbery victim

Spokane County will pay $60,000 to a 79-year-old robbery victim who says he was seriously injured when sheriff’s deputies manhandled him after he called them for help.
