A veteran Houston Fire Department officer is facing discipline for getting traffic tickets dismissed in response to a stranger’s request on Facebook, Local 2 Investigates reported Monday.
It started on a page devoted to firefighter issues on the social networking site. A 21-year-old Houston woman posted, “Can anyone of you help me. I am hoping one of you fireman out there may know a HPD Office that can help get some tickets fixed.”
She wrote that she was pulled over in the 700 block of North Shepherd and given four citations: speeding, no insurance, obstructed license plate and a cracked windshield.
