Two Veteran Firefighters Make Pornographic Videos at Work
AKRON, OHIO — June 20, 2018
Akron firefighters, Deann Eller and Arthur Dean, were placed on paid administrative leave Monday while officials conduct an investigation into the incident. Akron police are not investigating the incident as crime.
According to Akron officials, firefighters having sex in the firehouse is not something new. But this time, they made a porn video of it and then purposely posted it online. The case was reported by another firefighter, who noted that Eller and Dean were in a long-term relationship.
The police released photos from the personnel files of both Eller and Dean following a Monday afternoon press conference. Eller, 42, who recently had been promoted to lieutenant, and Dean, 49, both joined the Akron Fire Department in 2000.
"As leaders of this City and this Department, we find these allegations shocking and distressing to say the least,"a statement from Mayor Dan Horrigan and Fire Chief Clarence Tucker read.
The statement also noted that the investigation is ongoing, and that prompt and appropriate measures would be taken.
"These allegations bring unwelcome dishonor and embarrassment to the Akron Fire Department and the City of Akron and unfairly discredit the reputation of other Akron Fire officers," the joint statement said.
