A California firefighter was recently placed in handcuffs for refusing to move a fire truck from its parking place at the scene of an emergency. Local firefighters and members of the California Highway Patrol responded to a car accident in Chula Vista; firefighters parked their fire trucks in a way to block oncoming traffic and protect those at the crash site.

When CHP officers reached the scene, they began ordering the firefighters to move their trucks out of the traffic lanes or face arrest. Jacob Gregoire refused and continued assisting crash victims when an officer placed him in handcuffs and lead him to a police vehicle. RT’s Ameera David takes a look at what officials call a “miscommunication” between the two emergency responder departments.
