Probably no one has enjoyed being arrested quite as much as 99-year-old Annie, who crossed an item off her bucket list last week in the Netherlands.   (Politie Nijmegen-Zuid)

(Newser) – Cops handcuffed and arrested a 99-year-old grandmother who's never committed a crime, the Telegraph reports, and yet there were no protests or outraged blog posts. That's because Annie, who lives in the Netherlands, wanted to "experience a police cell from within" as part of her bucket list, according to WPVI. Last week, police in the town of Nijmegen-Zuid happily obliged. Officers put handcuffs on Annie and closed her in a jail cell, posting photos on the department's Facebook page. Time says "it looks like she's having an absolute blast." And officers say it was a "day to remember." (Read more uplifting news stories.)
