OGDEN, Utah — Soon after arresting a man involved in a domestic violence incident Monday, Ogden police charged the same suspect with stealing an ambulance last week.

Police were called to a home overnight after the father of Mitchell Bryce May, 29, reported that he was being violent. Officers found methamphetamine in May's pocket and were set to arrest him when he ran back into the home.

As police attempted to put May in custody, he continued to resist by kicking at officers. During the confrontation, an officer shot a Taser into May's leg to subdue him.

Afterwards, May grabbed the Taser himself and fired back towards the officers, although none were hit.

While being processed into jail, officers noticed May was wearing the same shirt as the suspect accused of stealing an ambulance in Ogden was wearing during the Jan. 3 theft.

The ambulance, which was taken in the area of 3rd Street and Washington Boulevard, was later found in the backyard of a home.

When asked about the ambulance Monday, May responded "That sure looks just like me. If it shows my face, then it's my fault," according to the Standard-Examiner.

For allegedly stealing the ambulance, May was charged with second-degree felony vehicle theft and misdemeanor interfering with a public servant.

In Monday's domestic violence incident, May was arrested on multiple charges, including disarming a police officer, assault on a police officer, intoxication and possession of a controlled substance.
