DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A former Georgia police officer who fatally shot an unarmed, naked man was found not guilty of murder on Monday.
Jurors did convict Robert "Chip" Olsen of aggravated assault, violation of oath of office and making a false statement. His wife began sobbing when she heard the verdict.
A judge was deliberating whether to grant bond for Olsen or keep him in custody until his sentencing on Nov. 1.
Olsen, now 57, was a DeKalb County police officer in March 2015 when he responded to a call of a naked man behaving erratically outside an Atlanta-area apartment complex. Shortly after arriving, he fatally shot 26-year-old Anthony Hill, an Air Force veteran who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and Post- Traumatic Stress Disorder.
