By EMS1 Staff

AUSTIN, Texas — A medic will be temporarily suspended beginning on Dec. 28 after posting "inappropriate and unprofessional" information on Facebook.

According to KVUE, Austin paramedic Robert Yarger will be suspended for two 12-hour shifts.

Yarger is being disciplined after posting "inappropriate and unprofessional" information on his own Facebook account which, a memo said, "brought discredit upon another City Department, himself, and ATCEMS."
