LEWISTON — A Lewiston firefighter was arrested Wednesday night, charged with driving drunk and crashing into a parked car on King Avenue.
Donald Lagrange, 54, of 22 Baril St., was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and failure to provide information on a vehicle accident.
At about 9 p.m., police received a complaint that one vehicle had crashed into another on King Avenue. The impact of the crash forced the parked vehicle into a garage, causing damage to that building.
Officers who went to the area found Lagrange nearby. After investigating further, they arrested him. Lagrange was booked and later released.
A private with the firefighting force, Lagrange has served as commander of the department’s honor guard. He has also received commendations for exceptional work.
Lagrange has had previous legal trouble, including arrests on assault and terrorizing charges.
Lewiston police were expected to turn over their reports to fire Chief Paul LeClair for review.
