An impatient patient who stole an ambulance at a Pennsylvania hospital because he wanted to go home is instead going to prison.
The (Wilkes-Barre) Times Leader reports 56-year-old David Karosus was sentenced to 15 to 30 months in prison Wednesday by a Luzerne County judge.
The Carbondale man told police he got tired of caretakers "screwing around with his leg treatments," so he hopped in the ambulance about 4:30 a.m. Nov. 1. The ambulance was left running outside the emergency room at Geisinger Wyoming Valley hospital after its crew transported a patient.
Police used a global-positioning device in the ambulance to track it down and pull over Karosus on Interstate 84.
