    Michael Paul had just been released from the hospital Sunday and needed a way to get out of there.

    His solution, the Broward Sheriff’s Office said: Steal an ambulance.

    According to a police report, Paul was outside the North Broward Medical Center, 201 E. Sample Rd., just before 6:30 p.m. Sunday when he spotted the empty ambulance, which was running. Rescue workers often keep the ambulance running so it can remain air-conditioned before getting their next patient, BSO told CBS4, Miami Herald news partner.

    The article doesn't give his age, but looking at his pic (what in the name of God's green earth did he do to his ears?), and noting that the charges include driving without a license and violating a learner's permit, on top of the fact that he thought stealing any vehicle because he needed a ride was ok, all indicate he doesn't assume a whole lot of anything reasonable.
