From WFTV:

A Polk County firefighter is on paid administrative leave after being arrested for allegedly selling hundreds of dollars of fake theme park tickets.

After being arrested just weeks ago on the same charges, Anthony Roman turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday.

Roman bonded out of the Orange County Jail on Thursday.


Deputy Chief Tony Crouse says the administration met with Roman on Thursday, but has not made a decision on his future with Polk Fire Rescue.

“I think it’s incumbent of us to hold a higher standard,” he said. “We work for the people.”

Crouse’s biggest concern is the distraction his arrest may cause.

“Our folks are in and out of peoples homes so we pay very close attention to that and we’re deeply concerned about that,” he said.

    Firefighter arrested for a second time selling fake tickets… why was this CLOWN not fired the first time.  The fire service keeps pieces of crap like this around when they should have been FIRED the first time he was caught.  Strike da box and I hope this idiot pulls some time in the pokie.  K

    Why is it that there's always some idiot out there making a bad name for all the rest of us good guys?  Seems the harder we try, the more devious some people get.  I understand this man is merely ACCUSED of this crime, yet even the mention of it brings criticism of the rest of us.
