Montgomery County Fire Fighter Trainee Arrested For DUI

His SUV smashed into a state trooper’s cruiser.



GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) – An aspiring firefighter in Maryland has been arrested for allegedly driving drunk, racing past a state trooper at 126 miles per hour, then smashing into the back of another state trooper’s vehicle.

Devin Robinson was enrolled in the training academy for firefighters in Montgomery County.

The Washington Post reports that allegations filed in court say that shortly after midnight on March 17, Robinson was drunk at the wheel of his SUV when he hit the trooper’s vehicle on Interstate 270 in Gaithersburg.

Robinson was cited for driving under the influence, reckless driving, resisting arrest and other counts.

A fire department spokesman said Robinson is no longer enrolled at the training academy.

Robinson’s lawyer said he takes the allegations seriously and looks forward to a “swift resolution of this matter.”
