SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Sioux Falls police trying to arrest a Lincoln, Neb., woman on shoplifting and drug charges said she faked birth pains. Officers were called to The Empire Mall Monday for a report of a woman stealing a key chain. When they searched the 35-year-old woman’s purse, they also found pain pills without a prescription.
As she was being arrested, the woman said she was going into labor, so she was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
Doctors determined that not only was she not in labor, she wasn’t even pregnant.
