A 47-year-old man was allegedly taken to Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital in Manhattan early on Thursday morning for monitoring.
According to a spokesperson for the New York City Police Department, the man escaped the hospital at about 5 a.m. in an ambulance.
He drove it for 25 miles before the police laid out a spike strip on the Tappan Zee Bridge. (I refuse to call it the Mario Cuomo bridge.)
According to the AP, the man was arrested on charges including grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, unlawfully fleeing a police officer in a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated.
