We LOVE this story! A North Carolina woman wanted to check off an item from her bucket list for her 100th birthday. Ruth Bryant wanted to go to jail.

So, police from the Person County Sheriff's Office obliged. They went to her assisted living facility and arrested her for--of all things--indecent exposure. Bryant was handcuffed and put in the back of the squad car and driven to jail with the lights and siren blaring.

As a birthday memory, she was given her mugshot.  After Bryant’s release, she was taken back to the nursing center to enjoy some birthday cake.
