Phoning it in

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I don't think this guy should be considered for public service again, volunteer or not.


A volunteer firefighter was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly made multiple false calls for fires and traffic accidents in Southwest Bexar County, officials said.


[Quinton] Arnold, a member of the Jarret Volunteer Fire Department in Von Ormy, allegedly placed four unfounded calls for service earlier this month, an arrest warrant affidavit states. He was using a disconnected cellular phone to make the calls from the fire station and was even part of the emergency crews that responded to the scene, the affidavit states.


Arnold has a criminal history of making false alarm calls, according to the affidavit. While he was a volunteer firefighter at another Bexar County department, he confessed to making a bomb threat to a middle school from the fire station's phone, the affidavit states. [emphases added]

I don't know. You think I'm being too harsh?
