ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say a man got behind the wheel of an ambulance as emergency medical technicians took care of his drunken friend in the back.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a Grady Memorial Hospital ambulance crew arrived to treat an intoxicated man found lying in the street around 3 a.m. Saturday. Police say 26-year-old Jordan Scott Moore drove off in the ambulance, hitting a pedestrian on the sidewalk and driving a short way until the EMT crew persuaded him to pull over.
Police did not identify the pedestrian but said the person was in stable condition.
Moore faces multiple charges, including kidnapping, interference with government property, theft by taking, hit and run, failure to render aid and reckless driving.
It was not immediately clear whether Moore had a lawyer.
