    My ambulance company in the news (EMT assaulted)

    Man accused of attacking friend then trying to steal ambulance in Va. Beach | TOP STORIES | WVEC.com | News for Hampton Roads, Virginia

    VIRGINIA BEACH A man is charged after police say he attacked his friend while driving, tried to steal an ambulance and then attacked a woman at a Va. Beach nursing home.

    Police say a joyride combined with smoking marijuana triggered events Monday night that ended with the arrest of Albert Jermaine White.

    The 19-year-old allegedly attacked his friend as he was driving on Old Donation Parkway. That caused White to lose control and strike a pedestrian.

    An ambulance from Medical Transport arrived to help the pedestrian and White struggled with one of the paramedics to get behind the wheel of the ambulance, according to investigators.

    Paramedic Chris Zaccaria says he fought White and cut his arm to keep him from driving off with the ambulance.

    When he failed to get control of the vehicle, police say White ran into Atria Nursing Home on Old Donation Parkway. Police say he punched a woman in the face as she stood outside.

    He was arrested hiding inside the facility, police stated.

    White is charged with abduction, felony assault of an emergency medical technician, simple assault, attemptedgrand larceny and possession of marijuana. More charges are pending, according to investigators.

    "All my friends will tell you I'm cool with I'm high," White said from the Va. Beach City Jail.

    White says he and three friends were in the car and were high from smoking weed on Monday. The date, 4-20, was the national "Get Baked" day.

    "I probably going to do some time. I hope they have sympathy. I'm not a bad guy," he stated.

    That's good to know...

    I think from a concealed carry point of view...how would you have acted in this situation if you were carrying? Would you draw? Shoot? Why or why not? Guy high on drugs...would you be justified. I personally don't think it is as black or white as some might believe. One has to look at the "time" element...nanoseconds to decide.

    The reason I mention this is I have the distinct feeling that some believe in shooting first, ask questions later view no matter what. Stuff hits the fan...and by the Lord entrusted in me...I am going to take someone down. Far harder than said.

    From what I can tell the guy was going for the ambulance, not the person. Don't think there's reason to present a weapon, unless my partner or patient were in the rig he was trying to hijack.

    What did the paramedic cut the BG's arm with? Did he have a defensive blade on hand, or did he reach for a tool when the attack started? I'm sure glad everything turned out (sort of) OK.

    That's funny...I read the line as the EMT was injured.
    Paramedic Chris Zaccaria says he fought White and cut his arm to keep him from driving off with the ambulance.
    Wonder which one was cut?

    ETA: the more I read it, you are probably right.

    Since when is a several thousand pound vehicle not a weapon?Do you think his behavior suggest someone who would not harm someone else with that vehicle?

    Attacking an EMT to steal an abulance can be looked at as more than a property crime. The emt was responding to a pedestrian that was hit by a car. By attacking the emt, the bg was delaying medical car to the pedestrian. Depending on how badly hurt the pedestrian was, I could see a scenario where using a concealed weapon could be necessary.

    For that half-baked idea, the idiot's fried now.

    What a coward!! I'd like to have been there when he punched the old lady in the face after the wreck. He'd a had more than just some cuts on his arms.
