Yukon firefighter faces second DUI charge

A probationary Yukon firefighter  has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of an internal investigation after being arrested for the second time in less than eight months on allegations of drunken driving.

Andrew Marshall Davis, 30, of Yukon, was arrested Thursday after Oklahoma City officers responded to reports of a three-vehicle accident.

Authorities said Davis appeared intoxicated, and officers conducting a field sobriety test smelled alcohol on Davis’s breath.

Davis has been with the Yukon Fire Department since October. He previously served as a volunteer in the Richland District.

According to a police report, Davis was driving a pickup that rear-ended another car, prompting that car to crash into a third vehicle.

According to the police report, said Davis failed several tests before being placed under arrest.

He also initially agreed to take a breath test, but then changed his mind

Inside Davis’s vehicle, officers said they found several empty beer cans.

Officials with the Yukon Fire Department said they are aware of Davis’s arrest and are conducting an internal investigation.

Yukon Fire Chief Sean Vogt said he was notified of the incident early Friday and immediately suspended him.

Davis’s last day on duty was Wednesday. He had been scheduled to return to work on Saturday, but was suspended as soon as Vogt learned of the arrest.

Davis was one of four firefighters who were hired in October. His probationary period is set to end in early October.

Meanwhile, this is the second time Davis has been arrested for DUI.

He also was arrested early Jan. 6 after Yukon officers received reports of a vehicle being driven erratically and at a high rate of speed.

Davis allegedly told officers he had been drinking and was on his way home.

He also asked officers to allow him to call his wife to pick him up.

According to a police report on that incident, he registered a .16 on the breath test, which is twice the legal limit.

He is scheduled to be in court Sept. 21 on that charge.

      @Mike Fry, what do you mean pulled you out of this type of whirlwind? I feel this man needs to face some consequences. He’s completely uprooted another persons entire life. He probably needs to get some help but he needs to be punished. It’s not ok to drink and drive. He caused a wreck!

    A PROBATIONARY employee gets his second DUI during his probationary period? So let’s recount, ok. The guy has had countless domestic abuse allegations and has even been arrested for if. He has shown up to work drunk, shown up to work late, no call-no showed….
    What does it take for a probationary employee to be termitated? I know the answer. Shall I share it?

      This probationary firefighter was allowed to resign. Was not terminated by City of Yukon.

        Andrew Davis was let to resign because the City of Yukon was going to fire him. Isn’t he your nephew Ray Wright and don’t you and your wife serve on several City Boards and could it be because your brother, Andrew’s Father in Law is Randy Wright of YNB?

    It’s bc his daddy-in-law is Randy Wright and he buys everyone off. His first DUI offense keeps getting pushed back. Wonder why….. This guy thinks he’s invincible. The fire dept better let him go after this. They’ll be a disgrace if they keep him

      Davis plead no contest to his dui charge in Canadian county last Thursday. He got a 2 year deferred sentence and his daddy in law paid his fees. His daddy in law is President and part owner of Ynb. His wife, Katrina has a felony in Payne County and works at Ynb.

      This family has always skirted by what is right and used their name. Seriously, who opens a trashy so called vineyard in the middle of a neighborhood on a street that children ride their bikes on! It’s awful that the city allows it! It would never happen in Edmond or a “real” city that was run properly.

    The single mom with the formerly paid off but now totaled vehicle and her three children are highly aware that they are NOT invincible. First responders causing the pain and suffering…It’s truly an unfair and infuriating world to be living in. He has failed his community multiple times and demonstrates himself as neither responsible or integris. The firefighters code of ethics do NOT apply to this man. He should not be on paid leave or coddled by daddy in law. He should be facing the harsh consequences of his actions.

    My brother, Randy Wright also got Andrew off of the dui charge in Oklahoma County from 2018. He is on probation but was not punished for the vehicle crash with children in the car. You can look up his name on Oscn.net.
