D&C – A drunk University of Rochester student took an ambulance for a brief joy ride early Thursday morning before crashing into a flower bed and getting arrested by Rochester police, officials said.
Capt. Gary Moxley said Rural/Metro ambulance services personnel had responded to 740 Library Road on the UR River Campus shortly after 2:15 a.m. to treat an intoxicated male.
While the ambulance crew attended to that person, a 22-year-old man jumped inside the ambulance and drove away, making it about a quarter-mile before “leaving the roadway and getting stuck in a flower bed on Trustee Road,” Moxley said.
The ambulance was damaged in the prank and had to be towed.
Robert Cordaro Jr. was charged with grand larceny, criminal mischief, DWI, and numerous vehicle and traffic violations.

Getting drunk and stealing ambulances…incredibly hot right now. A trending topic on campuses nationwide. This SUNY Geneseo dude:
This VCU pre-med kid:
And now our boy Robbie Cordaro, Rochester football’s finest:
Staying on trend, that’s just what kids do these days. Can’t blame a guy for getting hammered drunk and swiping an ambulance then instantly crashing it into a flower garden, not when everyone else is doing it too.
Plus it’s not like I’m gonna cry for that dude needing help in the first place now having no access to medical care. If you get drunk enough to require ambulance assistance that’s your own damn fault.
