His lawyer, Allen Sawyer, successfully argued it was a case of self defense noting that the stabbing victim was much bigger than Burlingame and reportedly had a Blood Alcohol Content of .20 during the altercation.

Despite his claims of self defense however, Burlingame was fired from the Manteca Fire Department after 12 years of service.
