Everyone loves a man in uniform.

Annie, an elderly woman from the Netherlands, finally knocked two things off her bucket list: getting locked up and going viral.

Annie expressed to her niece that she’d always dreamed of getting arrested and booked. So, as any good relative would do, her niece called the Politie Nijmegen-Zuid on her aunt.

When she explained her aunt’s wishes, the police were confused, but more than willing to help Annie take a walk on the wild side.


“Some arrangements were made and then we picked her up at her home [in a police car],” a spokesperson explained to BuzzFeed News. “We don’t usually do this, but we made an exception for Annie.” She was locked in the cell for only a few moments, but just look at the excitement on her face!

“It was all about the experience,” the spokesperson continues. “We don’t know why this was on her bucket list.”

Annie’s pictures were posted on the police station’s Facebook page and people just love how pure and fun this experience was. As for Nijmegen-Zuid, they have not yet received any similar requests.
