Woman about to be arrested fakes labour

When people are about to be caught for something they have been doing, or are in the process of being arrested, they will do anything to try to escape. Any excuse, any action, anything works. Police officers are pretty used to this excuse-making habit of people and in many cases have gotten immune; but, there is a basic decency in every person, and this lady tried to exploit this property in trying to escape being arrested:

A woman in America has discovered the hard way that faking going into labour doesn't help you escape arrest for shoplifting. The woman was arrested in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, after police were called to a mall over a report of a woman stealing a keychain. They also found pain medication without a prescription in her purse, and so also arrested her on drug charges.
But while being arrested, the woman complained of birth pains and said she was going into labour. She was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.

And this was the point where there was a lot of surprise involved; not only was the lady not going into labour, she was not even pregnant. The police did not take this kindly, and added the extra cost of the ambulance and hospital efforts onto her arrest charge. The judge is also less likely to be amused.
