Reports are that Joshua Bragg, who was arrested earlier in July on cocaine charges, was being transported to Cleveland Clinic Akron General from Medina Cleveland Clinic where he was on medical furlough, according to the Medina Gazette. During the ride, reports say, Bragg unstrapped himself from the gurney and walked out of the ambulance, into a wooded area nearby.
