A California cop handcuffed a firefighter who was in the middle of treating crash victims. This occurred because of a parking dispute.

The men had both responded to a car crash where a sedan had flipped over a concrete divider on the I-805. When Jacob Gregoir, a firefighter for more than 12 years, arrived at the scene, he parked his firetruck behind the ambulance to provide protection for the emergency responders — something the Chula Vista fire chief said fire crews are trained to do.

But the cop, apparently trying to clear the highway’s fast lane, asked firefighters to move their trucks.

…the cop decided to handcuff Gregoire and detained him in the back of a squad car for approximately half an hour.

“To detain one of our firefighters in the middle of an incident is ridiculous,” Chula Vista Fire Chief Dave Hanneman told CBS.
