[January 08, 2009]  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.

InsuranceOfficers 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.

Police say the woman will have to pay for the ambulance ride and hospital visit.
