RICHMOND, Mich., Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Michigan State Police said a man denied a ride from people at a hospital stole an ambulance.

Sgt. Craig Nyeholt with the Michigan State Police Richmond Post said Marcus Belgrave Jr., 31, of Detroit, stole a Richmond Lenox EMS ambulance idling outside the emergency room entrance of St. John River District Hospital in East China Township, the Port Huron (Mich.) Times Herald reported Tuesday.

Belgrave took the ambulance after failing to get a ride Saturday to his car in St. Clair, Mich., police said.

Nyeholt said Belgrave was pulled over in the ambulance and arrested without incident. He was charged with one count of unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle. He is due back in court for a preliminary examination Nov. 10.

Nyeholt said he does not know why Belgrave was at the hospital Saturday.
