From WTOP Radio’s Mark Segraves:

A local firefighter has been arrested and charged with a scam that involved CPR training.

WTOP was first to report that D.C. firefighter Natalie Overton Williams has been on paid administrative leave for more than two years while being investigated.

On Wednesday, Williams was arrested and charged with first degree felony fraud.

Williams will make her first court appearance on Thursday.

Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, confirms Williams turned herself in to authorities on Wednesday.

Documents obtained by WTOP show Williams was being investigated for using D.C. Fire Department letterhead to invoice companies for CPR training.

The maximum penalty for felony fraud is 10 years in prison and/or a fine of $5,000 or three times the value of the property obtained, whichever is greater.
