Last week, a pack of firefighters had a drunken brawl at Billy’s Tavern in the Bronx, New York.
The fight between members of Bronx’s Rescue Company 3 and firefighters from Ladder Company 49 and Engine Company 68, apparently started when someone yelled out a racial slur, the Daily News reported.
A black firefighter confirmed that a white firefighter had called him the n-word.
Witnesses said the rowdy firefighters threw punches, wobbled, and a few drove away drunk.
Although police came to the scene, no one was arrested—even after a firefighter pushed an officer. The NYPD is investigating why no arrests were made.
The NYPD is not usually so reluctant to arrest people, busting non-firefighters for crimes like turnstile jumping and alleged gang affiliation.
