New Records in Fire Station Sex Scandal
HILLTOP (Ben Garbarek) -- ABC6/FOX28 have new records in the ongoing sex scandal at Station 17 in the Hilltop.
A former battalion chief is now facing several charges from the Fire Department. Jerry Birkhimer is accused of having sex with an unnamed firefighter at the station.
Firefighters looking into this have decided Birkhimer broke the rules allowing the female firefighter into his bedroom and office, sometimes with the doors closed. Both Birkhimer and Neil claim they would only close the door for a few minutes if they were talking about something personal.
Neil passed a polygraph test denying she ever had sex with Birkhimer.
Birkhimer is also in trouble for apparently allowing his daughter to ride along with medics without the proper approval. He will have a disciplinary meeting with Chief Greg Paxton next Tuesday.
There are also new records on the firefighter accused of sneaking a woman into the firehouse through a window. More than a dozen firefighters were interviewed, and none of them said they personally saw their colleague -- who has not been publicly identified -- sneak his girlfriend into the station while on duty.
So far he has not been disciplined.
