now.. we'll get to the forecast in just a minute.. but first... last july--we told you about allegations of this switzerland county fire chief--faking fire training records. days after our report aired--state investigators launched their own investigation. now--months later--this case is closed. investigative reporter jody barr broke this investigation--and jody--multiple violations leveled against this chief? yes-- seven separate violations--all detailed in this report. tonight-- chief chris see--who heads the jeff craig fire department--is under a one year suspension of his license to teach firefighters. "mr. see...we'd like to talk with you about this suspension..." this is what happened when we found jeff craig
10:12 pm
last week. we wanted to ask him about the multiple fire training violations the state says he committed between 2011 and 2014. last summer--we reported allegations see had faked fire training records--and had done it for years. "this is the one i earned and this is the one given to me." last summer--cody miller told us--he is a victim of this. it happened in his basic fire training class chris see taught. miller told state investigators--chie f see "pencil whipped" his certification. barr: "so, he gave you all the answers to the test?" miller: "yes." barr: "was he supposed to do that?" miller: "no." state investigators found--see violated multiple state regulations during miller's fire course. the report shows some of the violations include: see used decade- old training materials--and see failed to properly oversee the course. when chief see showed up for an
10:13 pm
state investigators last summer--the report shows--see handed over training pictures--he said proved he did the right thing. but we found--one of the pictures--was posted on the department's facebook page--two days before state records show the class even started. barr: "did you ever ask chris see why this happened the way it happened?" miller: "no, never brought it to his attention because i didn't want to get kicked off." investigators also found two more courses where see violated training rules. a 2011 pumper truck training course where investigators found see finished the course in a single day--when it was supposed to have taken at least 69 hours. and--in a 2012 basic firefighter course--the state report shows--see finished this course in a day--when the minimum time to do so was 156 hours. last july--we had to track chief see down to ask him about the allegations: barr: "are you guys falsifying certifications in this county." see: "no
10:14 pm
want. thanks for your time." we had to track him down again last week--to ask him about the state of indiana stripping him of his license to teach. barr: "mr. see? see?...covers face with jacket and truck drives away." indiana's department of homeland security suspened see's fire instructor certification class i, ii, and iii--for a year. chief see will be on probation through january 2018. what is the state of indiana saying about this--does the state believe this chief is fit to continue to lead this fire department? i'd like to be able to give you the state's perspective on this--but the along with chief see

"a moment of silence for justice scalia." it did not take long for the death of supreme court justice antinon scalia to get political in the republican presidential primary debate. donald trump, u.s. republican presidential candidate "i think it is up to mitch mcconnell and everybody else to stop it. it's called delay, delay delay." one by one the g- o-p candidates-- payed homage to the conservative lion-- and predicted that any obama nominee to replace him would be unsuccessful. jeb bush, u.s. republican presidential candidate "there is no doubt in my mind that barack obama will not have a consensus pick when he submits that person to the senate." but president obama is pushing forward... promising to nominate someone quickly and warning senate republicans to not play politics with the court. president obama "there will be plenty of time for mine for me to do so and plenty of time for the senate to fulfill its responsibility to give that person a fair hearing and timely vote. these are responsibilities that i take seriously as should everyone." senate majority leader mitch mcconnell called on the president to wait... and leave the decision in the
