An off-duty Portland Fire and Rescue fire inspector was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Deputies arrested James Morelli Saturday in Clackamas County after they responded to a crash involving a city-owned car that was assigned to him.

Portland Fire and Rescue said Morelli is a 26-year veteran and is currently assigned to the fire marshal’s office.

No injuries were reported in the crash, according to Portland Fire and Rescue.

Because of the nature of his arrest, Morelli will not be allowed to drive any city-owned vehicles until an investigation is completed.
