WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Engine 33 on Atlantic Street in Southeast Washington can be a busy place with firefighters responding to emergencies.

On Wednesday, though, a member of that house found himself in the middle of trouble.

James Bunn II, an ambulance fire with D.C. Fire & EMS, was pulled over and arrested early Wednesday morning on suspicion that he was driving without a proper permit.

An incident report connected to the action indicates that Bunn's permit had been revoked over a previous DUI case.

The 35-year-old was then arrested and processed at 7th District Police Headquarters under the allegation of “operating after revocation.”

According to online court records in the District and Maryland, James Bunn has had numerous run-ins with the law.

In 2013, Bunn was convicted of driving under the influence in Washington, D.C. In 2003, 2009, and 2010, Bunn was also arrested in Prince George’s County on the allegation of driving or attempting to drive a vehicle while impaired.
