JANESVILLE, IA — A volunteer Janesville firefighter has been charged with drunken driving after he allegedly rolled a fire truck while on duty.
The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office said David Francis Flood, 43, was driving the truck as the department was either responding to or working on a fire in rural Bremer County on March 27. He was charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated on May 6 following an investigation.
“He was acting as a fireman when it occurred,” said Sheriff Dewey Hildebrandt.
The incident occurred around 9:15 p.m., according to records. A deputy estimated the damage 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, records say.
