Police pull over ambulance to arrest Okla. medic

An officer made the arrest inside the emergency vehicle

By PoliceOne Staff

Stillwater, Okla. — An officer serving a felony warrant pulled over an ambulance to arrest a paramedic, according to KFOR-TV.

LifeNet General manager Kelly McCauley told the station that having an ambulance pulled over -- and especially having an employee arrested -- was "unusual, unheard of" and "a completely new thing for our company."

The warrant for Timothy Grauberger, 38, was issued after it was discovered that he had written a bogus check in March.

Captain Randy Dickerson of the Stillwater Police Department called the arrest "an unfortunate situation."

He added there was no patient in the ambulance at the time, and if there had been, things would have been handled differently.

Police say they needed to take Grauberger into custody, no matter the circumstance.
