You are under arrest for being a good citizen!

by Banana Crumble | Apr 04, 2019

We are always on the hunt for stories that make us smile and when I heard this one I just had to include it.. If this story doesn’t make you smile not sure what will ?

A 104 year old lady who is a resident of the Stokeleigh Care Home in Bristol took part in a charity scheme where residents are able to put items on a bucket list and then some get chosen. Anne Brokenbrow wrote:

“My wish is… to be arrested. I am 104 and I have never been on the wrong side of the law.”

Two police officers came into the care home and arrested Anne before taking her for a drive in the police car. They used handcuffs during ‘the arrest’. Anne thoroughly enjoyed her day and said that nothing like that had ever happened to her before. The care home put the story on Facebook and said

“Anne got her wish to be arrested at the grand young age of 104 for being a good citizen!! It’s something that she has always wanted to experience.”

The police involved were part of the neighbourhood policing scheme so when they received the request they were happy to oblige. It is great when things like this happen as it builds community spirit and spreads a bit of good news and happiness when quite often the opposite is true.
