Stealing an ambulance on a Sunday night sounds kind of fun…

1:20 PM EDT on October 7, 2013


Sunday nights are generally drab and depressing, but wasn't last night extra-awful? After a solid six month run of quality/entertaining television – The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Mad Men, The Newsroom, Breaking Bad, and even Big Brother (sorry, it's a guilty pleasure) – America was left with a boring NFL game and being depressed that Breaking Bad is now over to entertain our lazy minds and help us forget about the upcoming work week.

I'm sure everyone handled the depression differently. If you were like me, you probably got intoxicated and watched Boardwalk Empire, thinking the entire time "God this long-winded, grandiose, boring dialogue is awful. Do these characters ever say or do anything normal?! They've even cut down on the nudity. Give Van Alden and the guy with the plastic face a meth lab or something. This show's gone downhill faster than Falcone's!"

Or, you could have been like this Oklahoma City teenager. He decided to play a real life version of GTA 5 and steal an ambulance.

From KFOR:

A teenager is in the hospital with minor injuries after he allegedly stole an EMSA ambulance and took it for a joyride late Sunday night.

Authorities say EMSA workers stopped at an OnCue gas station around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night.

While they were in the convenience store, a juvenile allegedly jumped in the front seat of the ambulance and took off.

However, police say he didn’t make it very far.

The teen allegedly crashed the ambulance into a light pole, blocking the on-ramp to I-44 from S.W. 59th St.

The suspect continued driving down I-44 until he lost control and rolled the ambulance, which trapped him inside the wreckage.

Officers say the ambulance was equipped with a GPS tracking device and they were watching his every move while he was on the run.

Fire crews were able to free the teen from the wreckage before taking him to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Authorities at the scene say the suspect will face multiple charges, including at least one count of drug intoxication.

Remember that weird kid in elementary school who preferred City Legos over the Space and/or Kingdom sets and wanted to be an ambulance driver when he grew up instead of fireman or policeman? Well, that kid was Clark Matthews, and to this day, he still only buys Shell gasoline.

Anyway, I now have no clue where I was going with this post. I think I was going to make some GTA and Breaking Bad meth jokes, but I lost control of it early on and now it's aimless, going nowhere and doesn't involve nudity. In a way, it's a lot like Boardwalk Empire. I'm done with that show.
