PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

A Cleveland Firefighter is accused of attacking a family member with a beer bottle.

Parma Police say it happened at a family party on September 13.

Captain Ron Vargo, 50, is facing criminal charges and pled not guilty at his arraignment last week.

Vargo remains out on bond until his next court hearing on October 7.

He is also under investigating in Cleveland for allegedly lying about an accident involving a fire truck. 

Vargo is charged with falsification. Cleveland Police say Vargo was in the ladder truck when it crashed on June 21.

Vargo and the firefighter driving the truck told investigators they swerved to miss a car, but security footage did not show any car.
