Crossdressing firefighter busted in bikini

MASON, Ohio, April 4 (UPI) -- A 46-year-old firefighter has been arrested in Mason, Ohio, after reportedly driving drunk in a park while wearing a bikini and woman's wig.

Police officer Scott Miller arrested firefighter Steven S. Cole Tuesday at Heritage Oak Park, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.


"As Cole exited the vehicle, I observed Cole to be wearing a very skimpy woman's blue bikini with two tan water balloons taped to the top to simulate two woman's breasts and a pair of pink Speedo flip-flop sandals," Miller said.

Cole told the officer he was on his way to enter a talent contest at a nearby bar when he was arrested.

The firefighter, who was in the park with his family, was charged with drunk driving, disorderly conduct and public indecency, the newspaper said.

Eyewitness Troy Harphant told the paper he thinks Cole should lose his job.

"As far as I am concerned, anybody that works in public service -- firefighter, EMT, police officer, whatever -- it's unethical and it ought to cost him his job," said Harphant.
