ROXBORO, N.C. — A very strange item was checked off of a very strange bucket list for a North Carolina woman.

She celebrated her 100th birthday ... in jail.

Ruth Bryant says she's lived a century and has never been arrested.

So Roxboro deputies made it happen.

They "arrested" Bryant at her assisted living center, but not without a playful fight.

At the jail, deputies gave her the full criminal treatment.

She returned home and celebrated with a big party and a very good story.
