ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- A man who couldn't get a ride from officers at the McMinn County Jail is accused of then stealing an emergency medical services vehicle and driving it home.
The Daily Post-Athenian reported 21-year-old Justin Jack is accused of taking the vehicle, ramming a police car, driving through a barbed-wire fence and abandoning the stolen vehicle near his home in a rural area about five miles from Athens.
No one was hurt in the Thursday incident. The vehicle was damaged.
Investigators said Jack was in jail Friday on Tennessee Highway Patrol charges of felony reckless endangerment, driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident.
