Iowa Firefighter Charged with Drunken Driving in Fire Apparatus

JANESVILLE, Iowa - Authorities in Bremer County have charged a volunteer Janesville firefighter with drunken driving after he allegedly rolled a fire truck while on duty.

The Bremer County Sheriff's Office says 43-year-old David Francis Flood was driving the truck when the accident occurred on March 27 in rural Bremer County.

After an investigation, Flood was charged Thursday with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.

A deputy estimated the damage to the fire truck at around $30,000. No injuries were reported in the incident, and an accident report didn't indicate if anyone was in the vehicle with Flood at the time.
