BOSTON (AP) — A firefighter has been arrested for allegedly crashing into a police vehicle and fleeing the scene just one day before retiring.

The Boston Globe reports 64-year-old Sean Ingram, of Quincy, was belligerent during his arrest Thursday night.

Police say the longtime Boston firefighter allegedly left the scene of a crash on Interstate 93 and expressed his disdain for state troopers during his arrest, calling them "Nazis."

He is charged with driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a collision causing property damage, assault with a dangerous weapon and resisting arrest.

Ingram was arraigned Friday, with bail set at $500. He will return to court in June. Fire department officials say they're taking the allegations "very seriously."

Ingram could not be reached for comment.
