Firefighter Fired For Entering Bodybuilding Contest While On Disability -- Acquitted

A former Boston firefighter who was fired three years ago after entering a bodybuilding contest while on disability leave has been found not guilty of defrauding taxpayers.

The verdict earlier this week ends a more than three-year-long saga that began in April 2008 when firefighter Albert Arroyo, then 46, filed for a disability pension, claiming he had suffered a severe back injury.
