Woman Fakes Constipation to Avoid Arrest


According to WAVE-TV, Myra Cook was at the University of Louisville Hospital when she was told she would be arrested when she was discharged. When she was released, the 40-year-old told officers she needed to use the bathroom. After an hour, Cook told officers she was constipated, thus the delay. An officer gave her a minute to get out of the bathroom, saying she could be charged with resisting arrest. When staff and an officer entered the restroom, she faked a seizure and had to be sedated. It took a total of seven police officers to get her into a police car. Cook was originally charged with methamphetamine possession, tampering with evidence and receiving stolen property under $500, court records show.
