A man was arrested after he fled from an ambulance taking him to the hospital while he was on medical furlough.
According to a press release from the Clay County Sheriff’s Department, 31 year old, Alan J Ksiazkiewicz was being transported by Clay County Ambulance from Clay County Hospital to Good Samaritan Hospital in Mt Vernon late Friday, September 8th. Kisiazkiewicz was on medical furlough from the Clay County Sheriff’s Department at the time and was being transferred for treatment of a serious preexisting medical condition. At approximately 11:19pm, the Clay County Sheriff’s Department was notified by the Salem Police Department that Kisiazkiewicz had fled from the ambulance when it was stopped or slowed in traffic in Salem. Kisiazkiewicz allegedly got up in the back of the ambulance, opened the door, and exited the ambulance. As Kisiazkiewicz violated the terms of his furlough, he was arrested by the Salem Police Department and was taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was later released to Clay County authorities.
Kisiazkiewicz was originally arrested after probable cause was found in Clay County Court on September 6th. Kisiazkiewicz was charged with two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, a Class 2 Felony. He appeared in court on Monday and was appointed Public Defender Elliott. A Preliminary Hearing was set for October 2nd at 10:00am.
