HOUSTON – Houston firefighters had to restrain a woman who tried to steal their ladder truck in southwest Houston Thursday morning, authorities said.

According to HPD, firefighters were sent to the 7500 block of Clarewood after receiving a welfare check call about a woman who may have been mentally unstable at a bus stop around 9 a.m.

At some point after they arrived, the woman tried to take off in the ladder truck. Firemen held the woman at the scene until police could take her into custody.
