FDNY firefighter busted for pummeling man over Queens parking spot

An FDNY firefighter who was honored earlier in the week for saving a manís life in a 2018 fire was busted early Saturday for pummeling a man over a parking spot in Queens, cops said.

Gilberto Martinez, 34, was riding inside his 2014 Infiniti Q50 shortly after midnight when he began arguing with the 27-year-old stranger ó who was a passenger in a 2013 Toyota Sienna ó over a parking spot on 184th Street between 89th and 90th avenues in Jamaica, police and law enforcement sources said.

The dispute escalated with Martinez repeatedly punching the man in the face, the sources said.

When police arrived and searched Martinez, they found an expandable baton on the floor of his Infinitiís passenger side, which he did not use during the dispute, according to authorities.

Martinez, who started with the FDNY in January 2013, was awarded the Thomas E. Crimmins Medal at the FDNYís Medal Day 2019 on Wednesday for the rescue efforts put forth during a fatal fire in Queens Village on April 28, 2018.

On Saturday, he was arrested and charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
