Patient who stole ambulance to go home is going to prison instead

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/2cbPoJz ) reports 56-year-old David Karosus was sentenced Wednesday to 15 to 30 months in prison by a Luzerne County judge.

The Carbondale man told police he got tired of caretakers treating his leg, so he hopped into the ambulance 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 GPS device in the ambulance to track it down and pull over Karosus on Interstate 84.
