Sitting in the back seat of a police car may not be how most people want to spend their birthdays, but it was a dream come true for one elderly woman in\u00a0Maine.\u00a0\r\nAnne Dumont\u00a0called\u00a0the Augusta Police Department to "gently arrest"\u00a0her mother, who turned 93-years-old last month. She had never been taken into custody before, but was an avid fan of the show\u00a0Cops\u00a0and \u201cwondered what it was like to be arrested\u201d,\u00a0according to her daughter.\u00a0\r\n\u00a0\r\nTwo days after her birthday, police showed up at her doorstep to place the arrest. Dumont describes her mother as "one happy woman"\u00a0upon seeing the officers, giving them hugs and sitting in the front and back seat of their car. A\u00a0post\u00a0Ms Dumont shared on Facebook about the experience this week soon went viral.\u00a0\r\nThe elderly woman was not taken to the precinct, but in an interview with\u00a0The Independent, Ms Dumont says the police making time to visit her mother was everything she could have asked for and more.\u00a0\r\n"My mum doesn't like travelling so it's funny that she is \u2018travelling' across the country through this story,"\u00a0she says. "When I did this prearranged 'gentle arrest' I only had a few family members and a special friend over.\u00a0We called it a gentle arrest but it was more for her to see the cop car up and personal. I know that she doesn't\u00a0like to be in the limelight so I kept it small".\r\n"She was so thrilled that she was able to do this and as I said in my story, she said to me that I made her life," Dumont adds. "That just warmed my heart that it made her that happy.\u00a0Phew, and it was a relief for me".\r\nAt one point, the 93-year-old even pushed the siren button \u2013 "a momentous event,"\u00a0her daughter wrote on Facebook.\u00a0\r\n"A month and a half later, she still talks about her \u2018arrest' with pictures to prove it,"\u00a0Ms Dumont says.\u00a0\r\nThe police department gave the elderly woman a junior officer police sticker for her birthday and thanked her for welcoming them to her celebration.\r\nIn a response to her post, the Augusta Maine Police Department Facebook page wrote, "Thanks for sharing your story with us! We were very proud to have been invited. [Love] our town!"
