LONGMONT, Colo. (KUSA) - Police in Colorado say a drunk man stole an ambulance while paramedics were treating an elderly patient.

EMTs in Longmont, near Denver, were coming to help this 86-year-old woman after she fell early Sunday morning.

While they were treating her, someone drove off in their ambulance.

Police say 51-year-old Robert Taylor stopped after about six blocks. He told officers that he got in the ambulance because he was cold.

Police say Taylor failed a field sobriety test.

D-U-I and theft aren't the only charges he faces. He also had an outstanding felony warrant for escaping from the Colorado Department of Corrections.
