LONG BEACH - A Nassau firefighter has been arrested for stalking, and police say it is not the first time he's made headlines.

Brian McNamara is facing charges of stalking a one time colleague for years, according to Newsday.

Former and fellow Long Beach firefighter John Ritter and his wife say McNamara tormented them for years.

McNamara has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail.  

In 2008 Brian McNamara, of Long Beach, accused two NYPD cops of beating him up in a late night fight.
