The Bonner County Prosecutor has dropped a felony charge filed against a Sagle man accused of high-jacking a county ambulance during a medical call last year.
Attorneys agreed to drop their case against 26-year-old Cody Wayne Mills due to lack of evidence that could prove criminal intent in his actions.
The judge dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning prosecutors can pursue the case again if new evidence emerges.
Mills was charged in December with operating a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent after a tussle with ambulance personnel responding to a call to his residence.
After entering the ambulance on a gurney, police say Mills got out of his restraints, got into the driver’s seat and drove the ambulance a short distance before crashing and causing $2,500 worth of damage.
