A 31-year-old Detroit man who was stranded at a southeast Michigan hospital was arraigned Monday after he stole an ambulance to get back to his car, authorities said.

Police said Marcus Belgrave Jr. stole the ambulance from the St. John River District Hospital in St. Clair County's East China Township on Saturday night after people inside the facility refused to give him a ride to St. Clair, where his vehicle was located, the Port Huron Times Herald reported on its Web site.

Michigan State Police Sgt. Craig Nyeholt told The Times Herald that the man fled in an ambulance left idling outside the emergency room entrance but was arrested a short time later.

Nyeholt told the paper he did not know why Belgrave was at the hospital.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
