Idiot #CHP arrests firefighter for responding to car crash

The Chula Vista firefighter who was handcuffed by a highway patrol officer at a freeway crash site last month has filed a claim against the agency, claiming he was arrested “with malice.”

Firefighter/Engineer Jacob Gregoire told reporters Tuesday that he doesn’t want to file a lawsuit, but hopes the California Highway Patrol will settle the case by agreeing to not obstruct fire crews performing their duties on state highways.

Gregoire said he filed the legal claim to try to bring about a change in how the CHP acknowledges that fire personnel should be considered in charge of freeway crash scenes involving sick or injured patients.
