| Thursday, November 5, 2009


EAST CHINA TOWNSHIP, Mich. Authorities said a 31-year-old Detroit man who was stranded at a southeast Michigan hospital face charges after he stole an ambulance. Police said the man stole the ambulance from the St. John River District Hospital in St. Clair County's East China Township on Saturday night after people inside the facility refused to give him a ride to St. Clair where his vehicle was located.

Michigan State Police Sgt. Craig Nyeholt told The Times Herald in Port Huron that the man fled in an ambulance left idling outside the emergency room entrance, but was arrested a short time later.

Police have not identified the man, who was expected to be arraigned Monday.

No further details were released.
