Driver of Clay County (FL) Fire Apparatus Involved in Accident Failed to Disclose DWI

The driver of a fire engine that was involved in a crash in Orange Park Friday has been placed on administrative leave for not disclosing a previous arrest for driving under the influence.

David Nettles, 27, was arrested in Duval County for driving under the influence in his personal vehicle while off-duty last November.

Nettles violated policy by failing to disclose information about the arrest to the Clay County Public Safety Department, according to officials.

Nettles, an engineer, has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into his failure to notify the county of his arrest.

Nettles was driving a fire engine on the way to a call around 9:45 p.m. Jan. 15 when it was hit by a car.

The driver of the car was critically injured and a passenger had minor injuries as a result of the crash.
