Medic arrested for driving patients while drunk - Michigan

     

Friday, December 14, 2012 GAYLORD -- An ambulance driver was arrested this weekend for drunk driving while on the job.

Police say 28-year-old Daniel Albrecht was transporting a car accident victim and a young child to Otsego Memorial Hospital when a caller tipped them off that Albrecht was driving while drunk.

When Gaylord Police arrived at the hospital, they determined Albrecht had been drinking and arrested him on the spot.

"In my 18 years in law enforcement I haven't personally seen anything like this or even heard of anything like this," said Brett McVannel, Gaylord Chief of Police.

Albrecht is a long time employee for Tri-Township Ambulance in Atlanta. The company tells 7&4 News that Albrecht has a clean record.

In a statement issued today, the company says: "Tri-Township Ambulance Service will remain providing excellent ambulance service to the community hospitals and patients and we will continue to remain commited to the health, safety and well-being of their patients and personnel."

"It just goes to show that alcohol does truly encourage making poor decisions and as any public safety, we rely on these people to take care of our family and friends," McVannel said. "When you make poor decisions like this case, it puts people's lives in danger."

Albrecht was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated and Child Endangerment. He was taken to the Otsego County Jail where he posted bail and is awaiting arraignment in January.

He has been suspended without pay.
