PERKINS TWP.

A Perkins Township firefighter is on administrative leave while facing a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Eric Yonkof, 26, a four-year veteran at Perkins Fire Department, is being paid while on a claimed unpaid administrative leave because of a stipulation in the fire department's labor contract with the township.

The contract says firefighters can use sick or vacation time to offset any mandatory unpaid leave.
