Mississippi Officials Confirm Fire Truck Wrongly Used in Video

July 23, 2012

Leaders of Jackson’s fire department say they’ve confirmed that a department truck and gear were used in a local rapper’s suggestive music video without approval. Department leaders say they’re taking “appropriate action” against employees who used the truck, The Clarion-Ledger reports, but didn’t say what they were doing.

The video surfaced earlier this month, with pictures of a ladder truck arriving outside a downtown Jackson restaurant and a rapper getting out wearing fire gear.

The company that produced the video, Play Wit It Entertainment and Management Firm, issued an apology earlier this week, saying it didn’t know it was breaking rules and adding that “words cannot express how truly sorry” the firm was for any inconvenience. The firm re-edited the video to take out the fire truck and gear.
