Police arrest man suspected of trying to hit ambulance

Sacramento police arrested a man suspected of trying to ram a fire department ambulance on the highway.

Fire department personnel were called to the 300 block of Graves Avenue about 9 a.m. Sunday in the Strawberry Manor neighborhood for a woman who needed medical aid. When they arrived, the woman's son was belligerent, according to a police department activity log.

Police responded and the fire department ambulance began transporting the mother to the hospital. Police allege that during transport, her son, Johnie Clemon, 30, tried to run into the ambulance on the highway.

Fire personnel called police again and officers arrested Clemon at the hospital. He was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
