LAWRENCE, Kan. Police in the Kansas college town of Lawrence say they have arrested a 21-year-old man who stole an ambulance to get home after a night of drinking.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl says the ambulance crew parked it early Sunday while responding to a medical emergency in an area filled with bars and specialty shops.

Hadl says the man was intoxicated and believed he had no other way home. He led police on a brief, low-speed chase.

The man was arrested on charges of theft of the ambulance as well as driving under the influence.
