After a woman missed her bus to get home from the hospital, 43-year-old Lisa Carr decided that she had plenty of effective transportation right at her fingertips: an ambulance. Problem: ambulances are not public transportation, and even though one was running, you can’t take those for a joyride.

Surprisingly, this woman is from the great state of Ohio and not Florida, where this stuff seems way more common than it should.

After police used GPS to find the ambulance parked outside her home, she was arrested and has now been charged with theft, failure to comply with a police order and driving under suspension. She doesn’t have an attorney, according to court records.

There is a silver lining to this bizarre story: it’s a good thing nobody was in the back of the ambulance desperately needing medical attention while Ms. Carr decided to take it for a quick spin.
