A Spokane woman faked a heart attack during her son's first court appearance on a drug charge Monday, court officials said.
An ambulance rushed to the Spokane County Courthouse but did not transport the woman, who had fallen to the floor after Judge Michael Price imposed $1,000 bond for her 29-year-old son on a drug possession charge.
“She fell into the aisle and was yelling 'I'm having a heart attack,'” Price said.
Though suspicious, court officials immediately called 911, and a transport deputy tended to the woman outside the courtroom.
The woman's son told court officials there was a 10 percent chance his mother wasn't faking.
