One Man Now in a Heap o' Trouble
EARLY SATURDAY MORNING AN OFF-DUTY Atlanta, Georgia, police officer found an unconscious (intoxicated) man in the Buckhead nightclub district of the city. He called for an ambulance and a Grady EMS unit was dispatched. The two medics put the man on a cot and placed him in the back of the ambulance where they both began treating him.
While they were treating him, a friend of the drunk's hopped into the cab and drove off with the medics in the back. Police were called for. The driver-for-a-day careened around town and ran over a pedestrian while making a turn. Finally, the medic crew convinced the misguided man to pull over and stop. When he did he was immediately taken into custody by a Georgia State Patrol officer.
The perp, Jordan Scott Moore, 26 went directly to jail without passing Go where he was charged with three counts of kidnapping, inerference with government property, theft by taking, hit and run, reckless driving, and failure to render aid.
The pedestrian was taken to the hospital where he remains in stable condition.
