CHULA VISTA, California (CBS 8) - A Chula Vista firefighter responding to a rollover accident on I-805 ended up in handcuffs Tuesday night after a dispute with a CHP officer.

CBS News8 cameras were rolling when the firefighter and officer got in an argument over where the fire engine should park while responding to the crash on I-805 near L Street.

Neither agency would make an official statement on camera.

CBS News8 video shows the CHP officer cuffing the firefighter, who was still in his uniform, at the scene of the accident. In the background, other fire crews and officers can be seen tending to the victims of the rollover accident.

The firefighter was detained in the back of a police car for about 30 minutes before being released. CHP and Chula Vista Police say both agencies will meet on Wednesday to discuss the incident.

The driver of a white Honda Civic involved in the crash was transported to the hospital. No word on the condition of the second driver.
