Maniac Cops: 10 Psycho Police Officers Who Went Wild

9. Officer Lawrencia "Bambi" Bembenek

Outfit: Milwaukee Police Department

Crime: Lawrencia "Bambi" Bembenek wasn't a cop for very long—she got busted for filing a false report on a fellow cop's behalf after her sister officer was busted for smoking weed. In the spring of 1981, Bembenek's husband's ex-wife turned up dead with a bullet in her head. Bambi was busted and convicted of the crime but she maintained her innocence and became nationally famous after she escaped from prison in 1990 and fled to Canada. Someone wrote a shitty song about her and others sold T-shirts bearing the legend “Run, Bambi, Run.” Bembenek was re-captured but she was out of prison by 1992 anyway. She was 52 when she died in November 2010.
