Lanier Brown, Drunk Hit-and-Run Asshole, Is a NYC Firefighter
Last week we posted video (viewable after the jump) captured by Joey Boots of some idiot crashing his Corvette and then eventually opting to speed away rather than face police questioning, despite the whole thing being caught on camera. Well, he got caught. He's been identified as Lanier Brown, a member of the FDNY for the last three years. Brown has been charged with drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident and has been given the maximum suspension of 30 days without pay from his job as a firefighter. The two people in the other car suffered neck and back injuries, while Brown's car looks like shit. Check out the video of the wreck's unbelievable aftermath below, via Boots and Animal NY.
