An Oklahoma City man is accused of driving drunk and running over a fire hose while firefighters were battling a house fire.

Robert Bradley Digby, 27, was arrested last week on complaints of driving under the influence of alcohol, disregarding a traffic control device and driving over a fire hose.

Police said Digby drove through a roadblock about 12:45 a.m. May 30 at NW 17 and N Francis Avenue and ran over a fire hose firefighters were using to battle a house fire in the area.

Officers pulled the vehicle over and noticed an odor of alcohol on Digby. He had bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech, according to the police report.

Digby consented to a sobriety test but failed to follow the officer's instructions, police said.

Throughout the test, Digby was uncooperative and verbally confrontational, the report stated.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail and released the next day.
