Former Melrose fire chief fined by ethics commission

The state Ethics Commission last week fined former Melrose fire chief John O’Brien $1,500 for accepting tickets to a Boston Bruins game worth $350 two years ago from the city’s ambulance contractor.

O’Brien admitted to receiving tickets in November 2010 from Cataldo Ambulance, which provides advanced life support services in Melrose, according to the Oct. 4 decision.
