Firefighter handcuffed at SoCal car crash scene
CHULA VISTA, Calif. (AP) -- A firefighter at a Southern California car crash was handcuffed for failing to move a fire truck.
U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/1nU5eJx) says crews were helping victims after a car overturned Tuesday night on Interstate 805. One person was taken to a hospital.
Chula Vista Fire Chief Dave Hanneman says a fire engine was parked behind an ambulance for safety reasons when a Highway Patrol officer demanded it be moved out of traffic lanes. The firefighter said he'd check with his captain but was told to move it immediately or face arrest.
KFMB-TV (http://bit.ly/1fSbVHH) video showed the firefighter being handcuffed. He was briefly held in a patrol car but not arrested.
CHP spokesman Jake Sanchez said he couldn't immediately comment.
CHP and fire officials met Wednesday to discuss the incident.
