SPOKANE, Wash. - Two people who helped a bleeding Shonto Pete after shots rang out in Peaceful Valley and called 911 at Pete's request are challenging a police dispatcher's testimony last week in the trial of suspended police Officer Jay Olsen.

Spokane Police Department dispatch supervisor Marvin D. Tucker testified for the defense that Pete admitted to him during the 911 call on Feb. 26, 2007, that he'd stolen Olsen's truck and then was shot.

"Pete never said that. I was three feet away from him," said Michael R. Dale in a telephone interview Tuesday from his new home on the Kitsap Peninsula.
