Queen confirmed that Fire Capt. Jed Jebodiah Moore, 32, was arrested Oct. 18 in Bartow County on one charge of DUI. He said Moore told the department immediately of the incident.
“We do take incidents like this seriously,” Queen said. “It is being handled by the fire department.”
Queen said a fire deputy chief investigates incidents like this and has done an initial investigation. Queen said he is waiting on the deputy chief’s final recommendation for discipline.
“Discipline will be carried out and implemented based on city policies and procedures,” Queen said.
Queen said Moore is not on administrative leave because the department is moving very quickly with the investigation and disciplinary actions. He said a move to discipline the firefighter will happen by the end of this week.
