(Scroll down for video) A man who was released from detention, stole an ambulance from a police station parking lot in order to get home, according to police reports in Arizona.
Chandler Police said that Cesar Garcia was initially arrested and taken to the Chandler Police Department on Sunday morning after he was caught drinking beer inside a local supermarket.
After Garcia was booked and issued a ticket he was released. However, since he was far from home, the 33-year-old decided to drive home to neighboring Guadalupe in an ambulance that was parked outside the police station.
“It seems that Garcia did not want to walk home.” Chandler Police said.
Eventually, the authorities caught up with Garcia outside his house, where he became involved in an altercation with officers.
Then, Garcia was arrested on charges of theft of transportation, unlawful flight from the police, resisting arrest, criminal damage and aggravated driving under the influence, or DUI.
