Lanier Brown, Drunk Hit-and-Run Asshole, Is a NYC Firefighter

@ANIMALNewYork: A buddy of mine sent me this pic of the car from the dui hit and run last night.jpeg
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.

Fire fighters can afford corvette convertibles? And, they go on strike?

I've known this guy for over 12years and I cant believe he did this. He has always wanted to be a firefighter since a friend of ours and his best friend who was a firefighter died trying to save lives in the World Trade on 9-11. Baffles my mind he did this leaving the injured at the scene of a crime he committed.

I am a firefighter from NYC and this person does not represent our department. With over ten thousand employees, some knuckleheads will make themselves known. I am sorry for anyone hurt in this accident. Please don't judge all firefighters by soon to x-firefighter Brown's actions.

I saw the entire video on you tube. You can hear someone saying "take his wallet"!! I don't about you but I rather take my chances with the cops than stay there in, the Bronx while someone is trying to snatch my wallet.

Ive seen several firefighters during these couple of years living in nyc and i think all of them they have the same asshole attitude they do less than nothing but they think theyre semigods walking among the rest for doing what a normal job like any other is like saying that giuliani is the hero of new york somebodyhas to stop this bs have anyone notice that theyre always in off duty problems barfights drinking and driving

Why not re-read the what the SmokeEater said about it being a 10,000plus department.  To judge an entire group of men and women based on the action of this guy is insane.  Are you the type to slam all over the incredible bravery of the US military also, because on rare occassion, one of them goes off the deep end?

And Giuliani by the way, when that moment came to hold his city together, met the challenge. 

If you wife got banged by some NYFD type, deal with it.  Don't try to slander a department that loses, every damn year, people in the line of duty.

why you dont re-read what i posted this is not an isolated accident its been happening for long time this kind of situation and if you can understand a bit of impasionate psycology but i dont think you could you can observe them with the same behavoir like a group of monkeys imitating the leader its easy to predict whats going on theyre a bunch of assh..s that can get in trouble Its "vox populi"  between the regular people if you understand some latin that theyre overpaid brainless useless monkeys. If theyre brave why not do it volunteer like in several parts of the world so they can have some time to find a job thats brave . By the way if you are a firefighter probably your partner is banging your wife or maybe hes banging you or each other,jajajajjaajja  a disaster  it could be the alcohol or the drugs or maybe the steroids
