Volunteer firefighter in wig and bikini arrested

A volunteer firefighter was arrested on charges of drunken driving and indecency in Ohio park. The most surprising fact: he was  wearing a woman's wig and bikini.

Steven S. Cole, 46, told an officer he was on his way to a Dayton bar to perform as a woman in a contest offering a $10,000 (Ђ7,500) prize, the arrest report said.

He was arrested Tuesday after police received a report of an intoxicated man walking and driving around a park in Mason. Police said Cole was wearing a blond wig, pink flip-flops and a string bikini with the top filled out by tan water balloons.

His blood-alcohol test registered 0.174, more than twice Ohio's legal driving limit of 0.08, the arrest report said.

He was due in court Thursday on charges of drunken driving, public indecency and disorderly conduct. A phone message left at his home Thursday was not immediately returned.

Cole has been a firefighter in Wayne Township since 2000. City officials said he will be placed on administrative leave.
