A Dallas Fire-Rescue firefighter has been arrested and charged with lying to city officials and illegally collecting more than $12,000 in paid sick time.

According to Fire Rescue 1, William Carter lied about positive COVID-19 diagnoses for himself, his wife, and his children. He lied so he can claim paid time off.

Dallas puts in a special code for employees who claim COVID-19 sick time for tracking purposes.

Police subpoenaed Carter’s bank statements to prove that during his ‘COVID recovery period’ he visited a water park with his family.

When confronted by fire department officials, Clark admitted to the false positive tests by saying he was motivated by greed.

He is currently on paid administrative leave while his case is being processed.
