A Long Island man bested all his bros recently when he allegedly stole an ambulance from a North Merrick firehouse, taking it on an epic three-mile adventure. Unfortunately, it appears he left a case of beer by the station, and cops tracked him down and arrested him yesterday. Budweiser will always bring you down, man.

Police say Salvatore Brecciano, 46, was hanging out in Merrick on the night of October 8th, swinging by a 7-Eleven to pick up a 12-pack of Budweiser. Brews in hand, he then allegedly wandered by a fire house and spotted the ambulance, whose keys were apparently in the ignition at the time. And like any quick-thinker, cops say Brecciano set the case of beer down on the ground, hopped in the ambulance, and drove off into the night.

Later that night, cops found the ambulance sans Brecciano about three miles away from the fire house. They say no damages were incurred to the vehicle, though the keys were missing. Unfortunately, the beer Brecciano reportedly left back at the station was pretty traceable, and cops were able to determine it had been purchased at the nearby 7-Eleven; Brecciano allegedly used a debit card to make the purchase, and cops arrested him on Friday. He was charged with second-degree larceny and will be arraigned today—but we're just going to go ahead and blame this one on 7-Eleven, because it is the devil.
