BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – A Boston firefighter is accused of making threats toward his department, according to a Boston Police report.
According to the report firefighter Kenneth Veiga told his captain he was unhappy the department physician had cleared him to return to work.
The firefighter allegedly mentioned "smashing a fire truck into a wall" and told the captain "I am Army trained and have weapons and ammunitions in a storage locker. Dorner will be child's play."
Christopher Dorner is the former Los Angeles police officer who killed four people and wounded three others before barricading himself in a building, forcing a standoff last week between himself and the LAPD. His remains were found in the burned California mountain cabin.
The firefighter then said he was "upset with City Hall, Fire Department Headquarters, and the Firefighters Union Hall," according to the report.
Veiga has not been
charged with a crime but a hearing is scheduled for next month to determine
whether he should be.
Veiga tells the Boston Herald he did not make any threats.
