Florida sheriff arrests two paramedics for degrading selfies

The release says the selfies included 41 patients, three of whom apparently agreed to the photos.

Two Florida paramedics are facing charges from the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office for taking photos and videos of patients inside ambulances as part of a "selfie war" competition.

24-year old Kayla Renee Dubois of Navarre is charged with two counts of interception and disclosure of oral communications, a third degree felony. She was arrested Thursday in Santa Rosa County.

The 49-year-old later returned to the house, however fellow contestants were very concerned for Jayne after the incident. Big Brother issued a statement at the time, saying: "The housemates" health and welfare is of paramount importance.

Crestview resident Christopher Wimmer, who is 33, turned himself in to authorities at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators say the two used their cell phones to take selfies and videos with patients inside ambulances for their own amusement.

Numerous patients were intubated, intoxicated or otherwise unconscious when they were photographed, reports the Panama City News Herald. "It was a sick, juvenile game I don't know any other way to describe it", said Okaloosa Sheriff Larry Ashley, according to WKRG. Officials say the battery charge involves Wimmer holding open the eyelid of a sedated patient for a selfie. The paramedic also allegedly posed with an elderly woman whose breast was exposed. Three of the photos appear consensual.

Nineteen of the other patients are female, 17 are male, ranging in age from 24-86, and two have died, the office said. Some of the photos were sent to other people, but an investigator says "a very small number" of EMS personnel received these images and videos.

"Because of the insensitivity shown by these individuals, we intend to prosecute them vigorously and intend to seek jail time", said Bill Bishop with the State Attorney's Office. They were frustrated, they were hurt, and their biggest fear [was] that these things [might make] their way to social media. Dubois was sacked on May 20, and Wimmer also resigned that day.

The pictures were taken between September 2015 and April 2016.
