Police Officer Arrests Firefighter While On Duty
A California HIghway Patrol officer arrested an on duty firefighter at the scene of an accident and the arrest is allegedly over where the firetruck was parked.
The Chula Vista Fire Department arrived first, with a firefighter-engineer parking his fire truck behind an ambulance to protect ambulance employees and the crash victims who were being loaded for transport to a hospital.
A CHP officer ordered the firefighter to move the fire truck because he felt it was blocking a lane of traffic.
When the firefighter refused to immediately move the truck, saying he needed to check with his captain, the CHP officer handcuffed the firefighter and put him in the back of a patrol car, where he stayed for about 30 minutes.
