Unusual but true. Police in the eastern Dutch town of Nijmegen-Zuid posted about it on Facebook, explaining how the woman was "arrested" and even "booked" into a jail cell.

Luckily, her niece arranged the whole affair. Officers who were glad to help, soon made their way to the woman and drove her to jail, after which they kept her behind bars for a few minutes. "She couldn't look happier!" The 99-year-old woman was smiling wide as she was slapped with cuffs, an event she was eager to cross off her bucket list.

Social media users took to the post commending the granny for her "achievement". "Great job Auntie!" one person wrote. "This post made my night!", another commented.
