Shoplifter Gives Her Sister’s Name To Police And Fakes A Seizure To Try And Avoid Jail

Shoplifter Gives Her Sister’s Name To Police And Fakes A Seizure To Try And Avoid Jail
World

When being faced with potential incarceration, some people do not know how to react, and often resort to some pretty desperate measures.

This woman took it to the next level. When police caught her shoplifting, she gave police her sister’s name, and then faked a seizure in an attempt to avoid going to jail.


Brittney Nicole Banta gave her sister’s name and birthday as her own in order to avoid having a criminal record for shoplifting in an Oklahoma Walmart.

Police were called shortly after 2:30 PM on Tuesday afternoon, after a Walmart employee reported Banta allegedly walked out with $35 worth of makeup without paying.

She gave the police her sister’s name because she had a warrant, and did not want to go to prison.

When she got to the nurse’s station at the precinct, she faked a seizure in an attempt to get out.

There is no word as to what subsequent charges Banta will face after the incident.
