A firefighter arrested in February for alleged domestic violence and illegal possession of marijuana has pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace as part of a plea deal and was sentenced to a supervised probation for six months.
As part of the plea deal, the remaining charge of illegal possession of a controlled substance was dropped.
In a written order last week, Superior Court Presiding Judge Robert C. Naraja also ordered Jaime N. Cuellar, 24, to pay a $100 fine, $25 court assessment fee, and $60 probation fees. He was required to perform 25 hours of community service.
According to police, the case arose from disturbance at the Micro Beach parking lot on Feb. 23, 2013, at 5:22am.
Police said Cuellar’s girlfriend told a responding police officer that she was at Micro Beach to pick up Cuellar, who was drunk. The firefighter, however, allegedly pushed his girlfriend twice, causing her to go off balance.
A Corrections officer allegedly found on Cuellar’s pocket a small baggie containing a leafy substance believed to be marijuana.
