Two Murfreesboro, Tennessee firefighters have been suspended following the discovery of two joints in Station 3 on March 11, 2012. Firefighter Terrell Ellis was suspended the day after the discovery of the joints, which coincidentally was the day that he and other firefighters were ordered to undergo drug testing.
Captain Theodore Pertiller is the other firefighter who was suspended. A “brown substance” was observed in his locker at Station 3 subsequent to the discovery of the joints. He has since been cleared of wrongdoing following tests conducted by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
The TBI has not yet launched a criminal investigation. Here is video coverage of the story.[Sorry – gotta click thru to see video]
