AUSTIN -- An Austin firefighter will serve a 15-day suspension after his off-duty arrest in New Orleans.

A police sergeant arrested firefighter Judson Hedberg in October for disturbing the peace, public intoxication and resisting an officer.

The sergeant said Hedberg smelled strongly of alcohol and tried to make inappropriate physical contact with him. When he placed Hedberg under arrest, he said he got belligerent.

Hedberg also didn't report his arrest to the department within 24 hours, as required by policy.

His suspension begins on Friday.
