A man is arrested and accused of trying to drive off in an EMSA ambulance while drunk.

It all happened early Monday morning near 11100 East 44th St.

According to arrest documents, 24-year-old Ryan M. Pugh of Tulsa climbed into the ambulance that was there for a medical call.

A paramedic saw him moving the vehicle back and forth in the parking lot. He hit at least one parked car in the process.

Medics and firefighters wrestled him out of the cab and held him until police arrive.

Records show Pugh smelled of alcohol and had the odor of burned marijuana on his breath.

He also denied a breathalyzer test. Pugh is being held in the Tulsa county jail on two complaints that include vehicle larceny and DUI. His bond is set at $6,000 dollars.
