GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — A 46-year-old Pima County man accused of crashing an ambulance after stealing it from outside a hospital in a Phoenix suburb reportedly told authorities he wanted to go home.

Police said in court documents that the ambulance was stolen Sunday from outside a hospital in Goodyear and that it collided with a car at a nearby intersection. Police then arrested 46-year-old Christopher Sauls of Ajo.

A court document said a fire official estimated damage to the ambulance at $275,000. Sauls remained jailed Tuesday on multiple charges, including theft and criminal damage. Court documents didn’t list an attorney for Sauls who could comment on the allegations.
