I Wish They All Could Be Oklahoma Girls

Don't you love this girl?? I have the inside scoop on this story--a friend of a friend of a friend knows the ex-boyfriend in question and asserts that he totally had it coming!:

Ambulance Stolen From Okla. Hospital
Driver Arrested In Del City
December 11, 2009
DEL CITY, Okla. --
A woman is in the Oklahoma County jail after allegedly stealing an ambulance early Friday.

State troopers said Mindy Jones, 28, took the $120,000 emergency vehicle from the hospital. Jones was supposed to undergo a blood test after she was arrested for a hit-and-run crash earlier in the night, authorities said.

Investigators said she slipped past security and got into the ambulance, which was left running with the keys inside.

A trooper spotted the stolen ambulance east of Oklahoma City and tried to pull over Jones.

The short chase ended when Jones parked the ambulance in the front yard at a house. Troopers said Jones was trying to find her ex-boyfriend.

Jones admitted to Eyewitness News 5 that she took the ambulance.

"I had the ambulance and I had a pretty good time driving it," Jones said.

Jones faces several charges. No one was hurt and the ambulance was not damaged.

A representative for React EMS said it was an oversight to not have the ambulance doors locked. "It's one of those bizarre incidents," said Shawnee Police Chief Russell Frantz. "The officer was a few feet away doing some paperwork and didn't hear her slip out. (The officer) thought she was passed out on a gurney."

In an interview with Eyewitness News 5, Jones explained why she did it.

"I have mental problems," she said.

Jones is facing charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and stealing a vehicle.
