La Crosse County Municipal Police Officer Suspended-Again

A Holmen police officer has been suspended again -- and for the same reason.

The ex-wife of Officer Brian Olson has once again accused him of violating a harassment restraining order.

A conviction could impact Olson's future as a police officer because it would bar him from carrying a gun.

When Olson was charged with the same offense in 2004, he pleaded no contest to an amended disorderly conduct charge and he was back on the force.

Olson has been on paid administrative leave for nearly two months. Holmen's Police Commission will deal with Olson's job status after the criminal case is resolved.
