Firefighter given 75-day suspension in wake of crash
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.
