PANAMA CITY, FL - Two Okaloosa county paramedics in Florida are facing felony charges for taking selfies with patients.  Police are calling the whole thing a "selfie war" that went on for 8 months.

The Okaloosa County Sheriffs Office says, Kayla DuBois and Chris Wimmer sent pictures of themselves with 41 patients in the back of an ambulance, including one of their own deputies.

Investigators say those selfies were shared with three other paramedics involved and possibly millions more on social media.

DuBois and Wimmer may be looking at five years in prison for each charge.  County officials have now banned the use of personal cell phones in ambulances.
