Davidson County, NC — We have new and bizarre details about the man accused of stealing a Davidson county ambulance and strapping a week-old deer carcass to the gurney. Investigators say Leon Hollimon stole the ambulance and led police on a three-county chase this past weekend. When they caught him, he was wearing a stethoscope, pager and had two latex gloves in his back pocket. The deer was attached to an IV. Investigators say they’re not sure where Hollimon is from, but he has a large number of arrests in the Jacksonville, Florida area and may be from there. They say they don’t yet know how he ended up in Lexington.

He’s currently having a mental evaluation at a state hospital in Butner.
