Man needs ride home, steals fire engine

Maybe next time Andre Marcellos Newsome will just called a cab.

The 38-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly stealing a fire engine from outside a south Sacramento fire station.

Newsome, who had just been released from a medical facility where he was being treated for a mental disorder, was walking past the fire station and saw the fire engine parked outside.

California Highway Patrol Officer Eric Aston said Newsome "figured a fire engine was as good as any other vehicle he could take."
