Woman's desperate attempt to escape police fails abysmally

A woman has been arrested while trying to make a getaway from police after she fell through the ceiling of a convenience store.

The woman, 29, was with a 28-year-old man at a convenience store in Alberta, Canada who was trying to use a stolen credit card.

CCTV shows the pair speaking with a uniformed police officer.

The conversation soon turns violent and the man appears to push the 29-year-old into the police officer who falls to the ground. Now shirtless, he runs off and continues to try and avoid capture.

The 29-year-old woman is then seen in a backroom climbing into an air vent.

But her escape plan does not work and she then tumbles through the ceiling, crashing onto a shelf.

The woman gets back on her feet with only one shoe on. 

The pair have been charged with multiple counts – including using a stolen credit card, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, attempting to disarm a police officer, and resisting arrest from someone aiding the police officer, CBC News reported.

Constable Shelley Nasheim said no one was injured in the incident.

Store owner Bhagwant Chauhan told CTV News Edmonton her husband, who was working behind the counter, grew suspicious of the man after he tried to buy a can of soft drink. 

He used a card but could not put in the correct pin number.

She was eventually arrested and charged. Source: CBS
