GEMS Director Mark Lamphiear said his agency is aware of the allegations.

"It is related to a civil matter and not work-related," Lamphiear said. "However, we are following the matter."

Gunn hasn't been disciplined by GEMS.

She was promoted to the position of major of business services in November. She is paid $73,831 per year, and has never been suspended in her 28 years at GEMS.

She was hired as a basic EMT at the agency in 1991, then promoted to EMT intermediate, EMT paramedic, lead worker captain, and her current position.

She is due in court on Thursday.

Gunn did not return a message left on her phone.
