Fake Ga. Firefighter Shows Up for Work

HALL COUNTY, Ga. --

A Hall County man was a little too eager to become a firefighter, fire officials said.

Officials said David Alan Spain, 25, reported for duty at Hall County Fire Station No. 13. on March 10.

Fire officials questioned Spain, out of suspicion, but he insisted he had been hired, according to Fire Chief David Kimbrell.

The fire official asked Spain for his paperwork and said he would call the county offices to confirm the hiring, according to Kimbrell. Spain fled when the fire official made the phone call, Kimbrell said.

Spain faces charge of impersonating a public officer.
