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.

Mount Juliet police said the Wilson County ambulance was parked on 300 block of Killian Way Saturday as the crew responded to a medical emergency and the paramedics heard the vehicle's engine start while they were preparing the patient for transport, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported Tuesday.

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.

Melamed was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle.
