The response of a Montgomery County firefighter to seeing a Confederate Flag above a colleague’s license plate has led his colleagues to seek a court protective order against him.
The strange case began on July 18 at Station 6 when Firefighter Idris Debruhl took issue with what he saw on Firefighter Charles Lee’s personal vehicle. According to Debruhl, the Confederate Flag offended him and he let his concerns be known.
According to his colleagues, Debruhl threatened violence prompting the firefighters to report his behavior to superiors and seek a court protective order. That, according to Debruhl, is retaliation for him standing up to racism.
UPDATE: 8/3/2017 – Montgomery County District Court Judge Zuberi Williams denied the requested “peace orders” stating “I’m not happy with anyone’s behavior here.” More on Judge Williams’ruling.
