A man who allegedly tried to steal an ambulance from a Montgomery County hospital messed with the wrong firefighter.
Investigators said Christopher Broadus was armed with a knife around 6:30 a.m. Sunday when he assaulted a nurse and then hopped into an ambulance that was parked right outside of the emergency room at Washington Adventist Hospital.
That’s when firefighter Diego Peclat, who’s trained in mixed martial arts, took Broadus to the ground.
FYI – @mcfrs FF Peclat was injured in process of securing a violent suspect. Along w/ a Hospital Security Guard & others He helped subdue a man w/ a knife & suffered NLT injuries. He is off-duty recuperating. FF Peclat & others will be avail next week to share their experience. https://t.co/J2oxUY76W6
