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.
