My experience is it’s unusual to find a firefighter doing something unique to get into trouble, but this is one I haven’t seen before. According to KPNX-TV, an Eloy, Arizona captain found a cell phone in an ambulance that belonged to the girlfriend of the man they had taken to the hospital. Instead of returning it promptly, the TV station reports Eloy Fire District Captain Scott Roninger is accused of going through the phone, finding naked pictures of the phone’s owner and sharing them.

Bianca Buono, KPNX-TV:

According to Eloy’s fire chief Kelly Weddle, Roninger was with the Eloy Fire District for more than nine years. Weddle said they were first made aware of the allegations back in March, and Roninger was immediately placed on administrative leave.

Roninger has since resigned.

The case is now in the hands of the Eloy Police Department. 12 News is also told the case is being reviewed by the Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
