Police in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, arrested a Bourne firefighter for an alleged OUI early Tuesday morning.
Alexander Heikkila, 31, from Plymouth, Massachusetts, was pulled over after a caller reported to police that a truck crossed the center line on Route 28 in Yarmouth and almost struck the caller head-on.
A Yarmouth police officer pulled Heikkila over and noticed Heikkila's slurred speech, the odor of alcohol, as well as a gun between the center counsel and the driver’s seat.
