ROXBORO, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina woman celebrated her 100th birthday this week by checking off a significant item on her bucket list: she went to jail.

News outlets report that deputies from the Person County Sheriff's Office went to an assisted living center and served Ruth Bryant with a warrant charging her with indecent exposure. Bryant playfully "fought" her arrest, kicking at the deputies as they arrested her, according to local outlets.

The deputies handcuffed her to her walker, placed her in the squad car and, with lights and sirens on, took her to the county jail. Bryant even had her mugshot taken.

She was released from jail and returned to the assisted living center to enjoy a birthday cake.
