BOAZ, Ala. (AP) -- Police in Boaz say a man who was injured in a car crash has been arrested for stealing an ambulance after being taken to the hospital.
Reports Monday say that 24-year-old Matthew Todd, of Boaz, was intoxicated during a crash in Sardis Friday and was hospitalized afterward.
Authorities say Todd was waiting for a room and eventually took off in an ambulance. Police found the ambulance abandoned in Boaz the next morning and say Todd tried stealing a horse but did not know how to properly saddle it. When that failed, police say Todd stole a car, returned to the hospital for treatment and was arrested.
Police say Todd is charged with two counts of auto theft and one count of burglary. He's being held on $7,500 bond.
