** A Stoke-On-Trent teen has been charged with causing criminal damage after he allegedly broken the side window of an ambulance while a woman was being treated inside. The Mirror (Mark Cardwell/May 22) said the 19-year-old apparently mounted his attack just before midnight Monday, forcing medics to drive the EMS unit from the scene. According to the newspaper, the female patient was then transported by another ambulance. The original rig was taken out of service for repairs. No one was injured in the incident. The man, meanwhile, who has not been named, remains in police custody.
