I tried to think of a joke for this...
but it's too funny (in a stupid way) in it's own right.
Stanford Law Student Takes Ambulance For Joyride
May 23, 2006
STANFORD -- A Stanford law school student who took an ambulance on a drunken joyride has pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors and apologized for the incident.
Julia Powell, 27, a Yale graduate from Cambridge, Mass., will likely serve 36 days in a county jail, possibly in a weekend work program. She will be sentenced Aug. 24.
"I will punish myself more than this court will ever do," Powell said in Santa Clara Superior Court on Monday.
Powell's attorney, Dan Barton, said his client's erratic behavior was caused by a mixture of painkillers she was taking for shin splints and a few alcoholic drinks.
Prosecutor Jay Boyarsky didn't pursue more serious felony charges of stealing a working emergency vehicle, saying the incident "was essentially a joyride."
"But it was a reckless and stupid joyride which could have had tragic consequences," Boyarsky said.
No one was in the ambulance when Powell took it last October.
