Fire­fighter given 75-day sus­pen­sion in wake of crash

San Antonio Express-News (Sunday) - - Metro -

A San An­to­nio fire­fighter was served a 75-day sus­pen­sion last month in con­nec­tion with a drunken driv­ing crash, ac­cord­ing to sus­pen­sion records.

David Mire­les rear-ended an­other ve­hi­cle at 10:35 p.m. May 26 at a traf­fic light near North­west Mil­i­tary and Wurzbach, ac­cord­ing to records. His blood-al­co­hol con­tent was recorded at 0.139 shortly af­ter the crash.

On­line court records show Mire­les en­tered a plea of no con­test and was sen­tenced to one year of pro­ba­tion.

Fire Chief Charles Hood ini­tially is­sued Mire­les an in­def­i­nite sus­pen­sion, ef­fec­tively fir­ing him, but the sus­pen­sion was low­ered to 75 days with­out pay. His sus­pen­sion be­gan Sept. 24.

As part of his sus­pen­sion, Mire­les will have to un­dergo coun­sel­ing and re­hab, and he will have to up­date Hood in writ­ing on his re­hab process or face ad­di­tional sus­pen­sions.
