While this 93-year-old is sitting in a police cruiser, it’s not for the reasons you think!

Simone Dumont is a huge fan of the TV show Cops, so the lively spirit thought it could be fun to celebrate her birthday by getting arrested!

Simone's daughter Anne arranged for the Augusta Maine Police Department to ‘gently arrest’ her mother, and the 93-year-old couldn’t have been more thrilled to interact with the boys in blue!

The cops even let her push the siren button.

In a post on Facebook, Anne says, "Mom loves to watch the show Cops. She goes on about how the police have the worse job and what they have to deal with ..... and she wondered what it was like to be arrested and sit in the back seat..... ah, so see, yes, that's where the idea came from so its her own fault."

According to Anne, her mom told her a few days later that the experience "made [her> life!" 

Who knew getting arrested could be the best part of a birthday?
