[Ed. – It was an entry to check off on her bucket lists. The cops were in on it. Don’t they all have better things to do?]
A Roxboro woman celebrated her birthday milestone in an unusual way: She’s having her 100th birthday party in a jail cell.
At Cambridge Hills Assisted Living Center, men dare not pass Ruth Bryant without getting a hug first.
Byrant’s birthday makes her an official centenarian. Her friends and family gathered to celebrate had no idea there would be a slight delay in the birthday cake tradition.
Sirens blared as a deputy approached the birthday girl with handcuffs, saying, “Are you Miss Bryant?”
She said, “It all depends on what you want!”
“Here’s what I want. I want you!” he said.
Bryant was in on the gag–including the charge leveled against her.
She’d never been to jail, but in honor of her 100th birthday, she checked an item off the bucket list: Heading to jail in cuffs.
