Responding Firefighter Detained At Scene Of Crash

Firefighters are used to putting themselves in harm's way while doing their duty. Heat, smoke, toxic chemicals, explosions -- all can cause injury or death, whether at someone's home, at a business, or while attending a car accident. There's no secret about the danger.

But after a dozen years in the business, Chula Vista firefighter Jacob Gregoire just learned a new twist: being handcuffed. That's what happened to him the other night when he refused a highway patrolman's demand to move a fire engine while in the middle of trying to help victims of a crash, according to Gawker.
