A Milwaukee firefighter was fired and a department paramedic resigned Monday over accusations that they shot what department officials described as a derogatory video at a city firehouse and posted it on YouTube.
Paramedic Edgar Brooks resigned, and firefighter Marcus Eastern was fired, according to an e-mail from department spokeswoman Tiffany Wynn.
Brooks was hired in 2005. Eastern had been a firefighter since 2001.
The two are accused of shooting the video while on duty, Wynn said. The video contained derogatory language, she said. Further details about the video were not yet available.
Brooks and Eastern had been the subject of a weeklong internal investigation, Wynn said.
