Firefighter charged with bribing other firefighters surrenders to police

Following a discrimination complaint, the Conn. firefighter tried to bribe to members of his department to back him up

By FireRescue1 Staff

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A Conn. firefighter charged with bribing a witness has turned himself in to police.

Firefighter Aaron Brantley, 33, was charged with two counts of bribery of a witness after he tried to get two members of his department to back him up on discrimination claims he made in 2012. He allegedly offered money from a resulting settlement in exchange, according to NBC Connecticut.

Firefighter Brantley claimed he was discriminated against when he was told to paint fire hydrants, clean window and run errands while recovering from an injury. He filed a complaint with the state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities.

He turned himself into police Monday morning and has an attorney.
