102-YEAR-OLD CROSSES 'ARREST' OFF HER BUCKET LIST

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTRK) --As the police cruiser pulled up to the senior center, it wasn't public enemy number one inside, but number 102.

Edie Simms is 102-years young and had never been in the back of a police car. Edie was happy to have fulfilled her unusual bucket list wish.

"These types of events and Ms. Simms help us do that and were more than happy to do these type of things," says St. John McLaughlin, St. Louis Police Department. "We love it and we get more out of it than the seniors do."

Friday morning she was dispensing pearls of wisdom and free pairs of socks and scarves in the police station.

"Keep going, don't ever stop whatever it is you're doing and spend some time doing community service. Sometimes the person you reach out and touch is the only person that they will talk to in a day," says Simms.

did the term bucket list exist before the movie came out?

Heck, I crossed that off my bucket list back when I was 18 years old.
