EL PASO — An El Paso firefighter was arrested by police after he allegedly falsely claimed to be a fire marshal while patronizing a local bar, authorities said Monday.

Raymond Gino Estrada, 35, is charged with impersonating a public servant.

Police allege that Estrada tried to interfere with officers last week who were checking out whether Coconuts Bar at 816 N. Piedras Street was in compliance with occupancy limits and noise laws.

A police incident report said Estrada claimed to be a fire marshal and told officers that only fire marshals could legally check occupancy limits.

Police said when they discovered Estrada was only a firefighter, not a fire marshal, he was arrested and booked into the downtown jail on $1,000 bond.

  1. The Waukesha Christmas parade murderer has a rap sheet 55 pages long and was released from jail after running down his girlfriend two weeks ago. And he used that same vehicle to run down the parade spectators. All because of the demoKKKrat policy of releasing criminals.

    1. And they are trying to claim he was fleeing another domestic violence incident when he “accidently” drove past SEVERAL barriers and mowed down parade participants. No way. This black supremicist did it on purpose.
