A 46-year-old Boston firefighter who was charged yesterday with chasing and kicking his stepdaughter during a domestic dispute will remain on duty while his case is pending, according to the Fire Department. Eugene B. Fortes was charged in Roxbury District Court with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for the Tuesday night attack outside his Roxbury home. He was released on his own personal recognizance. Fortes, who makes $92,000 a year, has been a Boston firefighter for 12 years, said spokesman Steve MacDonald. He is the sixth Boston firefighter in eight months to be arrested and charged with a crime. According to a police report, Fortes' 20-year-old stepdaughter, who had been kicked out last week after a fight with Fortes, returned to pick up her belongings at about 7:30 p.m. Fortes began to argue with her because she was checking the mail, and then allegedly chased her up the street and kicked her once in the thigh, according to the report.

  1. What your website fails to account for is the self-serving, biased media. The story of Eugene Fortes is FAR from accurate in the news. The woman assaulted him, in front of her mother (his wife), then went to police to have Fortes arrested in her frustration. The girl's own mother was behind Fortes the whole time, because he is innocent and a good man; however that does not make for a good story, and you are an ignorant fool for taking such hearsay trash as fact. Check the police report - he never said that he kicked her either. Your website, at least in this instance and probably in others is a lie and is as harmful to peoples lives and reputations as your supposed abuses. Nobody condones violence, but you cannot ruin a good man, with awards for saving lives, based on NO real evidence. Your site has no creditability at the moment.

  2. For every accused officer and firefighter on this blog there is someone saying it never happened. I'll let the case take it's course.

    If you have something to show, besides words, share.
