SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sioux Falls police trying to arrest a Lincoln, Neb., woman on shoplifting and drug charges say 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 35-year-old Erica McNally's purse, they also found pain pills without a prescription.
As she was being arrested, McNally said she was going into labor, so she was taken by ambulance to a hospital.
Doctors determined that not only was not in labor, she wasn't even pregnant.
Police say McNally will have to pay for the ambulance ride and hospital visit.
