DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A would-be good samaritan was found guilty of misconduct after claiming to be an EMT at a crash scene.

James Stevens pleaded no contest Monday.

He was found guilty of misconduct at an emergency and unauthorized practice as an EMT.

He was fined $171.00 and must serve six months probation.

Stevens stopped to help crash victims along US 35 last November and told them he was a paramedic, even though he wasn’t.

We did a little digging and found the incident wasn’t the first. Officials told us he did the same thing during the 2000 tornado in Xenia.
