We have been getting hot internet traffic that a major story will break this afternoon on the past of City of Los Angeles Fire Chief Brian Cummings. We have very strong leads on the nature of these past issues but will wait for story to break, which we expect shortly.
** Now the story via the LA Times's David Zahniser.
Los Angeles Fire Chief Brian Cummings will perform 120 hours of community service as punishment for being photographed with a bikini-clad woman on a fire engine, he said Friday.
Cummings decided to serve the volunteer time after admitting that he was photographed with the woman in front of a firetruck 13 years ago, mayoral aides said.
Another photograph taken at the same time shows the woman standing in front of a fire rig alone, topless.
