Sheriff's Office fulfills bucket list item


The Person County Sheriff's Office helped cross an item off the bucket list of a Cambridge Hills resident Wednesday.

Among the items on Ruth Bryant's bucket list has been to be arrested and taken to jail. For her 100th birthday Wednesday, the Sheriff's office helped her accomplish that goal.

Deputies Tevin Dixon and R.D. Weaver served a warrant for "indecent exposure" on Bryant during lunch at the residence. Officers handcuffed Bryant to her walker and she put up a fuss about being arrested, telling one deputy that he "was getting on my last nerve." That comment drew howls of laughter from deputies, family members and other onlookers who heard the exchange.

Deputies took Bryant from Cambridge Hills to the Person County jail with lights and sirens on, adding to the experience for her.

When Bryant arrived at the jail, Dixon and Weaver tried to get her out of the patrol car. She told them she had an idea about who they really should arrest.

"Who's that," Dixon asked.

"They people who make these low damn seats in all these cars," Bryant said. "You ought to arrest every one of them."

Once inside the jail, she had her mugshot taken following her "arrest."
