I will admit that I have pulled some theatrics to attempt to get out of a speeding ticket, but this story is hysterical. According to Kim Conte of the Stir:
"A police officer in New Zealand pulled over a speeding car on a state highway, the driver claimed his friend, a 23-year-old pregnant woman who was sitting in the passenger seat beside him, was giving birth. And the mother-to-be even had her feet up on the dashboard for dramatic effect!
The officer immediately called the woman an ambulance and cordoned off the road to make way for the paramedics to arrive; the driver was let go without a ticket.
But the story doesn't end there ...
When the woman arrived at the hospital, she promptly discharged herself; the hospital staff then called police looking for her. They put two and two together and determined that 1) she was only seven months pregnant and 2) had faked the labor to get her friend out of the ticket."
So what is the moral of this story? Pregnancy can have it's perks, but it may not pay to mess with cops.
What do you think? What have you done to get out of a ticket? Post your comment below.
