A Texas firefighter who reportedly was responding to an alarm, crashed into an occupied dwelling and is now facing charges of driving while intoxicated.
Blake Stevens, 31, a volunteer firefighter in La Porte, was arrested after his pickup truck slammed into a child’s bedroom last night. Witnesses say he was traveling at a high rate of speed at the time, and has a reputation in the neighborhood for doing so.
Stevens has been suspended from the La Porte Fire Department. Houston Public Media is also reporting that Stevens was charged with illegally carrying a handgun besides the DWI charge.
