Everyone has created a personal bucket list, which inspires them to go on the craziest and most absurd tasks conceivable. Regardless of whether they make sense to anybody else, bucket lists should make sense to the person who needs to compile them. On her 100th birthday, an Australian woman was recently detained as she crossed something off her bucket list.

A woman called Jean Bickenton was arrested in an unusual way in Australia. One of the woman's life objectives was to get arrested. The Victoria Police reportedly honoured her bizarre request on her birthday by busting into her party to take her into jail, according to a story in the Daily Mail. While the police played with her handcuffs, Jean was carried out of Narracan Gardens Residential Aged Care.

The 100-year-old woman had worked as an army nurse for many years before deciding to retire. She never had a legal trouble throughout her life, and as she approached her 100th birthday, she attained her life's goal.
