The name of an on-duty Omaha firefighter who was ticketed on suspicion of negligent driving was disclosed Wednesday when police released a copy of the citation.
Daniel L. Goessling, 32, was stopped by police about 9 a.m. Monday after someone called 911 to report an erratic driver near 168th and Q Streets, fire officials have said.
He has been placed on paid administrative leave and an internal investigation is under way.
Goessling was driving his 2009 Nissan Altima and was in uniform when he was stopped.
He was driving from a fire station on North 30th Street to cover a shift at another station at 168th and Q Streets, fire officials have said.
In 2011, Goessling was charged in Douglas County with driving an unregistered vehicle and without liability insurance; the first charge was dismissed and Goessling pleaded guilty to the second.
In 2010, he pleaded guilty in Douglas County to driving a vehicle without a valid registration and unlawfully displaying a license plate. Separately, he pleaded guilty to driving under suspension in Sarpy County in 2010.
In 2003, he pleaded guilty to possessing an ounce or less of marijuana in Washington County.
Goessling is completing his probationary work period at the Fire Department.
