WASHINGTON (AP) - A man who became violent in an ambulance, forcing medics to flee, is in custody of the D.C. police.
D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer says the ambulance responded to an address on Q Street in northwest Washington shortly after 9 a.m. Monday.
Piringer says the patient was believed to be suffering from an overdose, possibly from PCP.
He says that after the patient became violent, the crew got out of the ambulance and radioed for police. The man damaged the ambulance, which has been taken out of service. Nobody was hurt.
