RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. - A former Rutherford County volunteer firefighter has been accused of questionable conduct inside the fire station.

Craig Landschoot resigned from the department after fellow volunteer firefighter Dustin Johnson filed a complaint against him.

"I want to be the best firefighter for my county, but I can't do that if I'm being harassed on the job," said Johnson.

He said he was humiliated on several occasions and first filed a sexual harassment complaint against Landschoot with Rutherford County Fire and Rescue.

"We did investigate and several people did say they witnessed it and it was confirmed," said Chief Larry Farley.

The chief gave an order to terminate Landschoot, a 7-year veteran with the volunteer force.

"You have to as an employer act on it," said Farley.

Johnson then also filed a complaint with the Sheriff's Office leading to an indecent exposure charge against Landschoot. He was accused of revealing his private parts to Johnson on several occasions.

Johnson hoped it was just a one-time thing, but said it happened again and again.

Landschoot decline to comment for this story.
