A guy in Arizona was released from the hospital for a heat-related issue on Tuesday . . . but it was over 109 outside, and he didn't want to walk home. So . . . he stole an ambulance. He was arrested for unlawful use of transportation.
I don't say this often . . . but I'm totally on the criminal's side on this one.
There's a 37-year-old guy named Todd Shell from Mesa, Arizona, and he was hospitalized on Tuesday with a heat-related issue.
The high in Mesa on Tuesday afternoon was 115.
And when he was discharged, he didn't have a ride home . . . and considering that he'd JUST been in the hospital because of the insane heat, he didn't want to walk home.
So . . . he stole an ambulance.
The cops quickly tracked him down and pulled him over. And he explained his heat issues, and he said he was just going to buy a sandwich, then head home, and then eventually he was going to return the ambulance.
He was arrested for unlawful use of transportation. Sure hope the jail is air conditioned.
(Here's his mugshot.)
