JACKSON, Tenn.- A drinking and driving charge for a Jackson firefighter could cost him his job if he loses his license because of it.

The arresting officer's report showed Keim admitted to drinking. He is currently free on $500 bond.

City records showed Keim has been a firefighter since October of 2008. According to the fire chief, he remains on the job.
