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.
Nicely put Capt., being I am from Iowa... I do not understand this. I know times could get slow, but for cying out loud, try some cribbage, liers dice, or yukor instead of drinking. Only gives us another blow that we have to explain ourselves out of..
