Ada firefighter fired after threatening police officer

By  | 

ADA, OK -- An Ada firefighter has been dismissed after allegedly threatening a police officer. Jason Smeltz was fired from the Ada Fire Department Wednesday.

Smeltz was arrested last month after he allegedly threatened a police officer on Facebook following the arrest of his wife.

Authorities say Smeltz posted several threatening comments on Facebook about police officer Brad Rhoads, who arrested Smeltz's wife for public intoxication.

Smeltz is scheduled to appear in court next month.
