WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington Fire Department battalion chief is off the job after being arrested on a drunk driving charge.
Wilmington Police arrested James Casteen Sunday night on Ivocet Drive on a DWI charge.
A city spokesman says because Casteen cannot perform his duties as a firefighter without a driver license, Casteen is currently off work using accrued leave. He can return to work after getting his license back.
Casteen is due in court February 18.
