IOWA FIREFIGHTER ARRESTED – DUI IN FIRE TRUCK

Authorities have accused a volunteer firefighter of being drunk while driving a fire vehicle in northern Iowa.

Online court records say 42-year-old Jeffrey Feaster of Dakota City is charged with operating under the influence, first offense.

WHO-TV reports that Feaster has resigned.

Feaster was driving a rescue unit early on June 6 while responding to a traffic accident in Humboldt, the Fort Dodge Messenger reported. Court records say he smelled of alcohol that morning and failed two field sobriety tests. His blood alcohol content tested out at more than twice the legal limit for drivers.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 26.
