Like most pre-teens growing up in the ’90s (without cable television), my Saturday nights often involved watching back-to-back episodes of Cops, followed by an episode of America’s Most Wanted. And while I have not heard the “Bad Boys” theme song or seen John Walsh on my TV screen in some time, it’s not a huge surprise that some people are still obsessed with the law enforcement show.
Case in point: Anne Dumont’s mom, who got the surprise of her lifetime when she was arrested on her 93rd birthday. Yes, an officer at the Augusta, Maine Police Department put a grandmother in the back of a patrol cruiser — all because she loves to watch Cops. Let Anne explain…
“On July 9, 2018 Mom got arrested. Yep, arrested. I told you guys that she was the bad one, but you didn’t believe me,” she wrote in a Facebook post that has since gone viral. “She influenced all of us, but we held strong. Now that she is out of jail, I can post this……. kidding, she didn’t go to jail.”
