The Spokane City Council voted on Monday night against a settlement in which a Spokane police officer fired in 2009 after a DUI and hit and run, would have been rehired and received $275,000.
Public testimony on the matter was accepted.
In a settlement mediated by the Washington State Human Rights Commission, Brad Thoma was set to be rehired March 1 in a demoted position of detective, if the Spokane City Council agreed to the deal on Monday.
Councilmember Mike Fagan said during the City Council meeting, "I not only say no, but I say hell no."
Councilwoman Amber Waldref says before the detective was fired the city offered him a desk job where he wouldn’t have to drive.
Thoma will not be rehired; will not receive $275,000 in back pay.
