COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) – A woman who was stopped on suspicion of shoplifting makeup items at a grocery store in Council Bluffs was in a hurry, so she asked the officer for a citation.

The Daily Nonpareil says the officer asked the woman last week: What’s the rush? The woman said she didn’t want to be late to court. Court? For what? Her reply: Theft.

The officer then arrested the woman on another theft charge.
