No known complaint has been filed against Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen after a woman alleged she was assaulted by the chief of Revelstoke’s police in June.

Both the RCMP and the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP have told the Times Review they have not received any complaints regarding the incident.

The incident in question took place on June 7 when Julie Gamache alleged she was assaulted by Staff-Sgt. Olsen. Gamache told the Times Review she was assaulted after refusing to stop for not wearing a helmet.

According to witnesses, she gave Olsen the finger and continued biking for several blocks before she was forced off her bike and tackled.

Gamache has not returned several messages asking for comment.
