Longmont police: Intoxicated man steals ambulance
Longmont police say they arrested an intoxicated man who stole an ambulance while emergency crews were tending to an elderly woman who had fallen.
The Denver Post reports (http://bit.ly/1063a85 ) fire and medical crews were treating the 86-year-old woman in her Longmont home at about 3 a.m. Sunday when they heard the ambulance beeping, which means the vehicle was backing up.
Police spokesman Jeff Satur says "they ran out there and saw their ambulance driving off."
He says the vehicle was stopped a short time later, and the intoxicated man, identified as 51-year-old Robert Elmar Taylor, made a statement about being cold.
The man was charged with stealing the ambulance and driving under the influence of alcohol.
