SPOKANE, Wash. —

The Spokane City Council has approved a settlement with the city's former interim police chief.

The council on Monday unanimously approved the $190,000 settlement to Scott Stephens.

The Spokesman-Review reported the settlement stemmed from Stephens being placed on administrative leave in late 2012 over accusations that he made a workplace threat. Stephens' lawyer denies he made any threat.

Mayor David Condon announced the settlement April 26.

Condon named Stephens interim chief when Anne Kirkpatrick left in January 2012. Stephens was later demoted to captain when city leaders hired Police Chief Frank Straub. Shortly after, Stephens was placed on administrative leave.
