CHULA VISTA, California — A CHP officer arrested a Chula Vista firefighter last night over a disagreement on the placement of the fire truck. The Chula Vista Fire Department responded to a rollover accident on the I-805 and parked the fire truck near the center divide.
The firefighters were treating two patients when the CHP officer instructed one of the firefighters to move the fire truck. The firefighter refused and continued to treat the patients, at which point he was then handcuffed and placed in the back of the CHP patrol car. The firefighter was detained for approximately 30 minutes and then released at the scene.
The CHP and Chula Vista Fire Department will meet today in order to discuss the incident. [Read the full story…]
