A Polk County firefighter is on paid administrative leave after being arrested for allegedly selling hundreds of dollars of fake theme park tickets.
After being arrested just weeks ago on the same charges, Anthony Roman turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday.
Roman bonded out of the Orange County Jail on Thursday.
Deputy Chief Tony Crouse says the administration met with Roman on Thursday, but has not made a decision on his future with Polk Fire Rescue.
“I think it’s incumbent of us to hold a higher standard,” he said. “We work for the people.”
Crouse’s biggest concern is the distraction his arrest may cause.
“Our folks are in and out of peoples homes so we pay very close attention to that and we’re deeply concerned about that,” he said.
