"The ambulance rolled into the restaurant parking lot ahead of the dinner rush. A federal agent, parked nearby, watched through his windshield as someone climbed from the passenger side. Moments later, the passenger returned with a bag of food. Murfreesboro Ambulance Service later billed the ride to Medicare as two separate trips to a dialysis clinic, according to documents filed in federal court, with two patients laid up on stretchers, at more than $2,000 altogether. In federal charges against a Murfreesboro couple and their son, prosecutors claim that the man who retrieved the food was one of the patients."
