AUSTIN (KXAN) - An Austin firefighter is appealing an indefinite suspension after two alleged incidents involving aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and drinking and driving.
Sean Kaden was taken off the job two weeks ago after a disturbance call at Kaden's girlfriend's house in January.
The fire department suspension notice says Kaden allegedly knocked his girlfriend down with his car, and later threatened her with a knife. She was not seriously hurt.
The suspension notice also said during an emergency call four weeks earlier, Kaden was unable to respond, forcing his colleagues to respond understaffed. It was later discovered he had controlled substances in his system.
Kaden has been with AFD for more than four years.
An appeal hearing date has not been set.
