Weird Crime: Fast food--still bad for you, even if your pregnancy is fake.

Hamilton County, Ohio

On August 5, 2012, police officers arrived at the home of Tamala Grissett to arrest her for shoplifting approximately $1,300 worth of items from a local Macy's. When they asked her for identification, Tamala handed them a fake I.D. When this tactic failed to get her off the hook (and exposed the fact that she still had 11 outstanding warrants for her arrest), Tamala resorted to Plan B: Screaming at the one of the officers that she was going to kill him and threatening to file an abuse claim.

When that didn't work, Tamala then went with Plan C: Fake pregnancy complications/going into labor.

I'd like to pause the tape for a minute to point out a couple of things:

-Plan C should have been Plan B. Once you've threatened a police officer, you're getting busted no matter what happens next. If Mary had told off a Roman soldier right before giving birth to the baby Jesus, she still would have been thrown in a dungeon before the umbilical cord was cut. I doubt Tamala's possibly fake child birth would have gained much sympathy from her arresting officers.

-I referred to a "possibly" fake child birth due to the fact that it's not yet known if she is actually pregnant or not. That's really embarrassing for everyone involved in this situation.

The officers rushed Tamala to the hospital. After only a few minutes, however, she promptly made a daring a nearby McDonald's.


The sweet siren call of McRibs and Free Wifi is 
just too much for some fugitives to resist.

Police arrived at the golden arches and made the arrest. Tamala Grisset has been charged with theft, escape, aggravated menacing (?) and obstruction of official business. She is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center.
