STOKE-ON-TRENT, England — A woman was arrested for allegedly leaving a scathing note on an ambulance while the crew was responding to a call.

FOX News reported that police arrested the unidentified woman on suspicion of public order offenses after paramedic Katie Tudor tweeted a photo of the note that was left on the ambulance while the crew treated a person who was having difficulty breathing.

“If this van is for anyone but Number 14 then you have no right to be parked here. I couldn’t give a s--- if the whole street collapsed now move your van from outside my house,” the note read.

“As a Trust we welcome Staffordshire Police’s swift response to this incident and the arrest of the woman. We will continue to work closely with the police to ensure the perpetrator feels the full weight of the law,” a West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesperson said. “We have a zero-tolerance policy toward people who abuse our staff while trying to help patients in their hour of need. It is completely unacceptable and it must stop.”
