Man plays doctor with dead deer in stolen ambulance

Leon Holliman Jr., 37, of Jacksonville, Florida was reported missing from the River Region Human Services facility last month.

Apparently, Holliman was nabbed and released earlier in the weekend for other unusual behavior.

Lieutenant Scott Nanney says officers saw the man with a wheelchair near the hospital.

"Actually he was in the wheelchair riding it in the middle of the road and intoxicated. So, that's when officers decided to take him into jail for four hours."

Police say the man wasn't charged with anything in the wheelchair incident.

He was only taken to jail for his safety, until he was sober enough to leave.
