Firefighter Arrested for DUI After Crashing into Fire Hydrant

Broken Arrow (OK) Police arrested a Tulsa Firefighter for drinking and driving. Officers say Ryan Stephens crashed into a fire hydrant.

The Tulsa Fire Department confirms Stephens is a firefighter but did not comment on his arrest.

Broken Arrow Police say Stephens told them he “just left the bar and was headed home,” when he crashed into a hydrant near Omaha and Aspen early Friday morning.

Stephens told police he had “four double shots of Crown and Dr. Pepper.” His arrest affidavit says Stephens was “unsteady on his feet” and had “red watery eyes.”

Police say his breath alcohol results were .17, more than twice the legal limit.
