    Unhappy The Joke's on him....April's Fool

    Darwin Award- 1st Place. What a dumb stunt!

    Veteran Passaic firefighter charged with official misconduct

    (Passaic-AP) -- An apparent April Fool's Day prank has a veteran
    Passaic firefighter in hot water.
    Stephen Geosits, a lieutenant who has served with the fire
    department for 18 years, was indicted yesterday on charges of
    official misconduct and making a false public alarm.
    Prosecutors say Geosits was off-duty when he went to the
    department's dispatch headquarters on April First. He first radioed
    the city's Westside firehouse about a heavy smoke condition, then
    issued a second report about a fire at another location.
    Geosits, who was suspended without pay shortly after the
    incident occurred, won't discuss the charges.But his attorney says
    the matter should have been handled administratively.

    NJ toughened up their "false alarm" laws due to a staged drowning in my area a few years ago. Much larger fine involved at least.
