Firefighter Arrested for Trying to Save Lives


Talk about heavy-handed! A firefighter in California ended up in handcuffs after trying to help victims at the scene of an accident.

It all started when the firefighter followed procedure to protect emergency workers.

The CHP officer, whose name has not been released, told firefighter/engineer Jacob Gregoire to move the engine out of the traffic lane or he would be arrested, Hanneman said. He said Gregoire, who was checking the overturned car for any additional victims, answered that he’d have to check with his captain.

That’s when the officer detained Gregoire, a 12 :½-year fire service veteran, Hanneman said.

Let’s hope the police officer involved is reprimanded for this shameless power trip.
