NOW (2/22/08) the cop was NOT in the right,,.... read this.....Hazelwood officer fined $18,000 for arresting firefighter on emergency call

10:26 AM CST on Monday, February 18, 2008

Watch News 4 coverage

Tell us: What do you think?

(KMOV) -- A police officer in Hazelwood will have to pay thousands of dollars for getting into it with a firefighter while he was trying to help an accident victim.

News 4 obtained police video that shows the Hazelwood police officer arresting a fire captain while he's trying to move an injured driver.

Watch raw video from the dashcam It happened on Interstate 270 back in May of 2003.

Officer Todd Greeves wanted a fire truck moved to open up another lane of traffic.

The Robertson Fire Protection District Captain wanted the truck there to protect emergency workers.

Officer Greeves has been ordered to pay $18,000.

His attorney says he's disappointed and that his client's conduct was not malicious in any way. NOR WAS THE FREAKIN FIRE CAPTAIN STUPID "SUIT">..

I've Had to tell one or two Rookie Troopers TO Call His Supervisor to the scene,on occasion... They get educated REAL quick In MY state The FIRE OFFICER is ALWAYS IN COMMAND BY statue For this very reason...I dont know teh state law in your area, BUT obviously its at least a little less then here....BUT this casehopefully will change THAT.. I respect that the interstates Need to be opened up asap, BUT I have also seen a brother get struck and LUCKILY only Loose a Leg and have to spend 3 or4 years trying to fight to get back where he could still do his JOB, while the perp who was a asian student on a visa was on a plane that very morning to avoid any responsability, for driving ariound and through and over the secured accident scene because His life abnd regard for anyone else was so important Officer , That apparatus suddenly BROKE down Period...THis is awesome...!!!
