OGDEN -- A woman tried to strangle herself with her thong as she was being booked into jail, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office.

A person caught a woman pickpocketing patrons at The Outlaw Saloon and turned her in to the bouncers for trying to take a wallet, according to a statement from the sheriff's office. She denied it and started walking away.

When a bouncer asked her about the wallet, she pulled her summer dress up over her head and spun around 360 degrees. Thinking the men were distracted, she tried to drop the wallet into a trash can, the statement reads.

Deputies arrived and arrested her for theft and outstanding warrants. On the way to Weber County Jail, she told an officer that if she was put in jail she would try to kill herself, the statement reads.

Jail staff were advised of what she said. While the paperwork was being filed, she tried to strangle herself with her thong, which she wrapped around her neck, according to the statement.

Jail staff "took care of the situation," according to the statement.
