A Macomb Township man is facing charges after authorities say he hopped in an unattended ambulance and drove off, leading police on a chase throughout Mt. Clemens.
Authorities say the crime happened around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 7. MedStar workers had entered the hospital to drop off a patient, and left the ambulance parked just outside.
“Two deputies that were in the area saw the van and attempted to stop it,” Sheriff Anthony Wickersham said.
A brief chase ensued and at one point, the suspect drove off the road and down a grassy hill.
“The subject refused to get out of the ambulance where they had to break a window and pull him out of the vehicle and take him into custody,” Wickersham said.
