In March of 2022 Cody Dylan Lynn-Phipps was picked up by Bristol Township Police for a probation violation. He was on drugs at the time and he started to overdose. He was  given Narcan  and Penndel Middletown Ambulance was called and transported him to Lower Bucks Hospital. He then removed his restraints and got out the front door. He hopped into the drivers seat of the medic unit and took off.
