AUSTIN, Texas — Acting Austin Fire Chief Jim Evans has fired a lieutenant who told a co-worker on last year's anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that he would have wanted to rape a female passenger had he been on a plane used in the attacks, according to a memo filed today.

Evans wrote in the seven-page memo that Lt. Christopher Giberson also harassed female firefighters by calling them "denigrating nicknames," repeatedly sent or viewed pornography on city computers and advised an apparently intoxicated driver in a wreck to tell police that he hadn't been drinking.
