Northwest Georgia Scanner has reported that a man is being held at the Bartow County Jail after leading multiple agencies on a pursuit in a stolen ambulance from Clayton County on I-75 early Tuesday morning.
A Be On The Look Out alert for the stolen ambulance was given out just after one a.m. The dispatcher advised it had GPS tracking on it. The ambulance was quickly spotted by an officer going 20 miles-per-hour in the far right lane of I-75 northbound near exit 293. The officer then got behind the stolen ambulance and waited for more help before attempting a traffic stop.
Once enough officers got into position, they attempted the stop at which point the driver, identified as Louis Scrivani of White, quickly sped off.
Officers ahead of the pursuit deployed a spike strip in an attempt to impede or stop the movement of the ambulance by puncturing its tires. Shortly after hitting the spike strip, Scrivani then tried to strike police officers in their patrol vehicles with the stolen ambulance.
After hitting a few more spike strips, the ambulance’s tires started to go flat causing
Scrivani to stop. Scrivani then attempted to flee on foot before quickly being arrested by law enforcement.
Emerson PD, Cartersville PD, Adairsville PD, BCSO, and GSP assisted in the pursuit of the stolen ambulance.
Louis Scrivani is being charged with theft by receiving stolen property, fleeing a police officer for a felony offense, two counts of aggravated assault, and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers.
