Just because you're a firefighter responding to a car crash doesn't mean you won't get arrested for bad parking
Hardcore emergency-service-on-emergency-service action! A firefighter in Chula Vista, California, who stopped his firetruck to deal with a ‘rollover car accident' was surprised to find himself arrested by a local policeman for parking in the wrong place.
According to local news site CBS8: "The officer told firefighters to move three fire engines from the fast lane. Two complied, but one firefighter refused that request and continued giving aid to the crash victims." Jeez, what a douche.
All this story really needs is a doctor to rock up in an ambulance, and start giving unwanted defibrillation to the policeman. Emergency service rock-paper-scissors. Let's make it happen.
