An EMT worker has been arrested for allegedly wanting to stay in Queens rather than do his job in Brooklyn.

William Medina, EMT for the FDNY, was arraigned on the night of Oct. 9 before Queens Criminal Court Judge Michelle Armstrong on a criminal complaint charging him with second-degree falsifying business records, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and third-degree falsely reporting an incident.

According to the report, on Aug. 19, Medina exited his FDNY ambulance at the intersection of 65th Street and Roosevelt Avenue and called 911 to report that a man, at the intersection of 74th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, was not breathing, further claiming that he thought the man was dead.

In response to Medina’s call, two FDNY ambulances and one fire truck raced to the scene only to find that there was no male at the location having difficulty breathing.

Medina admitted to reporting the false claim because he wanted to stay in Queens, according to the report.

Medina, who faces up to a year in jail if convicted, was released on his own recognizance and ordered to return to court on Dec. 1, 2015.
