Woman Steals Ambulance from Hospital

June 5th, 2012 at 9:32 am

The Chicago Tribune reports that a woman who stole a Chicago Fire Department ambulance from St. Bernard Hospital in the Englewood neighborhood was arrested after she crashed the ambulance several blocks from the hospital. Law enforcement authorities stated that 30-year-old Cassie Weathersby was not injured after she stole the ambulance for unknown reasons and soon crashed it into another vehicle. Weathersby is being held on $25,000 bond for criminal charges of vehicle theft, driving on a suspended license, and driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI).

There are a variety of situations that might lead to a driver’s license suspension, including DUI, failure to provide proof of vehicle insurance as requested, and excessive traffic citations. When your driver’s license is already suspended and you are caught driving, you undoubtedly face an additional suspension period if convicted of this crime. Furthermore, a DUI conviction results in a driver’s license suspension period, as well.  As a result, Weathersby would do well to immediately contact an experienced DUI attorney for assistance with her case, as she is facing a potentially lengthy period without her driver’s license, as well as other serious penalties.

Vehicle theft is another serious criminal charge that you cannot afford to take lightly. If convicted, you could face fines, imprisonment, and possible restitution, in this case, for the costs of the damages to the stolen ambulance. Depending on your criminal history and all relevant circumstances, this theft could result in less severe or more severe penalties. Do not risk facing a theft charge on your own. Take the initiative and contact a skilled and qualified Rolling Meadows, DUI lawyer for assistance in your case, and rest assured that you will have the best defense possible to any criminal charges.
