Michael John Lytle, Surf City Riot Suspect, in Danger of Losing Fullerton Firefighter Job

One of those arrested for participating in Sunday's riots in Huntington Beach has been identified as a Fullerton firefighter whose job is now in jeopardy.

Michael John Lytle, 30, of Anaheim, was held on suspicion of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Fullerton Fire Department officials reportedly told a KCBS/Channel 2 news reporter that Lytle has been placed on administrative leave.

Depending on how the case against him plays out, Lytle could be fired, the officials are reported to have added.

It is apparently being reported behind the Orange County Register's fabled paywall that Lytle was hired as a Fullerton firefighter in February 2008.
