Battalion Chief arrested 3 times in 24 hours


A firefighter in Ohio was arrested three times in 24 hours at a Cleveland airport after getting drunk and becoming disorderly.

55-year-old Cleveland Fire Battalion Chief William Graham was arrested on multiple occasions last week while trying to get aboard several flights.

The first arrest took place around 1PM on Monday, after the battalion chief tried to catch a flight to Boston and became aggressive towards passengers and JetBlue staff.

“I’m a battalion chief in the City of Cleveland,” he told police, who charged him with being intoxicated and disorderly.

Back at the airport by 7AM the next day, Graham made it aboard a second flight to Florida, but soon caused another disturbance and forced the plane to return to the gate.

Complaining of chest pains, he was taken to the hospital, but eventually returned to the airport a few hours later.

On his third and final time, Graham became belligerent and once again complained of chest pains when approached by police. In response, law enforcement took him to the hospital, but then took him to Cuyahoga County Jail shortly after.

According to the Daily Mail, the battalion chief spent 48 hours behind bars before he went before a judge, pleading not guilty to two misdemeanor counts of intoxicated disorderly conduct.

In the end, Graham was ordered to cover court costs and pay a $100 fine.
