Police are arresting everyone if you look at them wrong, and this firefighter found out the hard way.

The California Highway Patrol and Chula Vista Fire Department responded to an incident that left a firefighter in handcuffs.

An officer’s move to detain a firefighter responding to a crash scene has some asking about the chain of command during emergency situations.

The two got into a dispute over where the fire engine should park while firefighters were responding to the crash.

The officer told the firefighter to move his truck from the center divide, but the firefighter refused that request and continued giving aid to the crash victims.

The firefighter, who’s been with the fire department for 12 1/2 years, was detained in the back of a CHP vehicle for about half an hour before being released
