Firefighter Arrested for DUI While On-Duty

A San Francisco, CA firefighter was arrested after being accused of driving under the influence while on duty. Police report that this man allegedly sought to dilute the alcohol levels in his blood before the police arrived just moments after he crashed the fire truck into a motorcyclist just last month. This veteran firefighter, if convicted of the DUI, will very likely lose his job according to the fire chief.

Reports describe that the firefighter took off his fire garments before entering into he local pub, and it was here they saw him chugging numerous pitchers of water after the accident in hopes of concealing his current blood alcohol content levels. Due to the lack of people into hat particular pub, he was very easy to identify. June 29 was a Saturday night, and as this man drove the truck to respond to a smoke call, the driver turned the truck around a corner, hitting the motorcyclist in the process. Sadly, the vicitim sustained serious injuries from the incident and was taken for treatment at the nearby hospital.

Right after the incident occurred, the supervisor warned the driver to remain in the car while the officers conducted their investigation of the scene. However, he quickly disappeared for over 90 minutes. Numerous surveillance cameras caught him on camera, and when he returned, despite his efforts with a lot of water, he was tested for a .13 percent BAC, the legal limit being .08 for average drivers. Police arrested him on the spot.

In the event you have been arrested for driving under the influence, it is imperative that you contact a trusted Tampa DUI lawyer at Thomas & Paulk, immediately. As seen in the story above, this man could likely lose not only his license, but also his job. Take these criminal charges seriously and call our firm today!
