MOUNT JULIET, Tenn., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Police in Tennessee said they arrested a man who allegedly tried to move an ambulance on an emergency call because it was blocking his car.

The crew found Warren Melamed, 65, preparing to move the ambulance and were able to stop him, police said. Melamed told police he became angry when he saw the ambulance was blocking his car so he decided to move it out of his way.
