A man who has worked for the city Fire-Rescue department for 15 years has been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol after he was allegedly found inebriated inside of his parked vehicle.
On Wednesday afternoon, the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office received a call reporting that a vehicle was seen speeding down the street before parking in front of the courthouse where the driver remained inside of the car.
A sheriff’s deputy went to the location and found a vehicle fitting the description given in the call. When he approached the car he noted that the person in the driver’s seat was asleep. Upon waking him the man was identified as Michael Ovdiyenko.
