A man is in custody facing charges after police say he left the hospital in Atlanta where he was being treated to take an ambulance out for a spin.
Officials say early Monday morning the paramedics went inside Emory Hospital Midtown on the 500 block of Peachtree Street and left the engine to the ambulance running.
According to investigators, 33-year-old Jonathan Williams, a patient who had been discharged from the hospital, hopped into the vehicle, and drove off.
A short time later, an officer found the Grady ambulance near Piedmont Road and Monroe Drive.
The officers stopped the vehicle and took Williams into custody without incident.
Williams is currently at the Fulton County Jail charged with theft by taking vehicle, running a red light, and failure to maintain a lane.
