EUNICE, NEW MEXICO - A setback for the Eunice fire chief.

Ron Grogan was supposed to have a hearing with the New Mexico Department of Health about the status his paramedic license.

The state suspended it a couple months ago after Grogan admitted to inappropriately touching a female patient on an ambulance run.

Grogan and the City of Eunice appealed that suspension saying the touching was consensual, so he didn't deserve to have his license yanked for a whole year.

His hearing for that appeal was supposed to be Friday, but it's been delayed.

No word on when it might be rescheduled.
