‘Remorseless reprobate’ brazenly frustrates SFFD rescue effort 

A “surly scoundrel” stood in the driveway of a San Francisco fire station, purposely blocking firefighters’ path as they were heading out to respond to a serious car accident, and stuck his middle finger at the rescue crew before he was finally arrested, police said.

The man, who officers are calling a “remorseless reprobate,” blocked emergency crews as they were leaving the 19th and Folsom streets fire station to respond to a traffic collision in which a person had been trapped in a car, police said. The incident occurred around noon, July 17.

“As the sirens wailed, the idiot continued to block the driveway,” police said. “When the air horn was hit, the surly scoundrel walked up to Rescue 7 and gave them the middle finger.”

After sensing that “a number of fire fighters were about to take appropriate action to clear the driveway,” the suspect finally got out of the way, police said. He was arrested a short time later.
