Posted: Updated:

A firefighter has died after being run over by a car, and police say the driver did it intentionally.

The Michigan firefighter was raising money for charity.

Police say the driver went past, yelled at the firefighter, then turned around and hit him with his car.

After a chase, the driver was arrested.

The city is now mourning the loss of the firefighter and marine corps veteran.

"He was just a joy to work around and it is with a heavy heart that i stand before you to even discuss this," Chief Randy Talifarro says. 

The firefighter just got married two months ago. His widow is expecting their first child.
