This 99 Year old Woman Was ARRESTED So She Could Check It Off Her Bucket List

Funny |



Lock her up and throw away the key!

Annie, aged 99, has succeeded in being arrested by her local police and was booked into a jail cell... All so she can say that she's crossed this bizarre item from her bucket list!

Whilst most of us will go our entire lives avoiding this particular experience, at almost 100 years old, this elderly woman - who lives in the Netherlands - had wondered her whole life how it would feel to be arrested and put in jail.

Her dreams of living a part of the criminal lifestyle became a reality when police in Nijmegen-Zuid agreed that she could fulfill her desire of getting the "inside experience".

Annie has apparently stated that this strange yet exciting idea came to her when her niece paid a visit to the police station to report a crime.


The police officers involved posted pictures to their Facebook page, which feature Annie with the biggest grin on her face from inside a cell. She's been locked in handcuffs and all! The pictures are proving extremely popular, and are raking in more than 4400 likes.

Underneath the photos, Annie's desire to "experience a police cell from within" is explained. As she is almost 100 years old, this fun loving old lady just wasn't willing to let the experience pass her by.

Lieutenant Peter Smit said that Annie spent only a short time in the cell, and affirms that despite everything, this lady is innocent: "In her life she never committed any crime, and thought it would be exciting to experience," he said. "As you can see in the picture from our post, she found it hilarious to be in the inside with the handcuffs."

A spokesman for the station continued:

“We don’t usually do this, but we made an exception.

“It was just a couple of minutes in the cell. It was all about the experience. We don’t know why it was on her bucket list.”
