Georgia woman arrested after stealing ambulance, leading deputies on high-speed chase
Georgia deputies say a woman was arrested after she allegedly stole an ambulance and led deputies on a high-speed chase.
Andrea Bryant, 58, was taken into custody on early Tuesday morning after allegedly stealing an ambulance and driving its south along I-18 towards Macon, Georgia, according to FOX 5.
Officials said they got a call at around 1:20 a.m. from Henry County asking to be looking out for the stolen ambulance.
Deputies with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office located the interstate along I-75 and attempted to pull it over, but Bryant continued to drive at speeds between 86 and 88 mph.
Eventually Bryant got on I-475 and deputies set up stop sticks, which deflated the ambulance’s tires, officials said.
She allegedly drove the ambulance for another mile before coming to a stop, and then ran away from the ambulance.
Deputies arrested Bryant shortly after.
She’s facing charges of fleeing/attempting to elude, speeding in excess of maximum limits and failure to maintain lane in Monroe County and additional charges of stealing an ambulance.
