Cleveland firefighters worst overtime offenders

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News is raising more questions about the use of your tax dollars in the Cleveland Fire Department. We found one firefighter has earned more than $169,000 in overtime in the last five years.

The overtime leader in that period--Larry Gray, the department spokesman. In some single years, he's earned between $35,000 - $40,000.

How does someone in that job make that much? He tells us he earned it legitimately. This comes to light as investigators are looking into widespread sick time abuse and overtime abuse in the department.
