A Minnesota woman charged with stealing an ambulance from an Arlington Heights hospital is scheduled to appear in court today.
Samantha Sligar, 27, of Minneapolis is charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
At four this morning, police say she got in the ambulance outside northwest community hospital.
She then traveled south with the siren blaring -- and running other cars off the road.
She drove it for 145 miles before police eventually stopped along I-57.
Sligar is in custody at the Champaign County Correctional Center.
