Man 'too drunk to walk home' calls ambulance

By EMS1 Staff

NIAGARA FALLS — A Niagara Falls man called an ambulance Friday night because he was “too drunk to walk home.”

Jason Evans, 34, asked to be admitted to the hospital. He instead got a free ride to jail after he became belligerent, The Buffalo News reports. 

Police were called to Pine Avenue just after 7 p.m. and met with the ambulance crew assisting Evans.

Officers advised him that ambulances “are not a form of taxi service.” He became belligerent, and was charged with disorderly conduct.
