A woman told police the arrest was on her list when she was arrested.
Janiya Shaimiracle Douglas was spotted by police at 7:47 a.m. Thursday morning when she was speeding and was recklessly driven, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said.
The 19-year-old woman from Homestead, Fla., didn’t stop and instead continued driving for a while, the police department claimed.
Sergeant Robert Dosh, following the car, turned on his lights and siren and followed the vehicle until it was stopped at a three-way intersection.
As he approached the car and began speaking to Douglas, she told this officer that an arrest had been on her wish list since high school.
Douglas was sent to prison and charged with a felony count of fleeing and escaping from police.
A Facebook user commented on the arrest on the Sheriff’s Office official page.
“My bucket list is to make it to my death without getting arrested…so far, so good,” Mickey Forster wrote.
Douglas’ arrest isn’t the only unusual thing happening in Florida, which has a strong track record when it comes to eyebrow-raising crimes.
In March of this year, a 12-year-old boy and a 14-year-old friend armed with an AK-47 held a 35-minute shootout with police in Florida.
Travis O’Brien, now 13, was sentenced to a juvenile facility after he shot police alongside his teenage accomplice Nicole Jackson in June last year.
The couple had escaped from a local children’s home and entered a home in Volusia County when the shooting began.
No deputy was hit, but Jackson was shot dead eight times by deputies while walking out of the house with a gun, affidavits said.
That’s what O’Brien’s defense attorney Jeff Deen said WESH TV : “He’s a little runt, little boy, and he’s in a big mess.
“He wasn’t in control of his situation and can’t understand some of the things that we understand.”
The youngster did not plead guilty to charges of burglary, criminal mischief and attempted murder of law enforcement officers.
He was referred back to a maximum risk assessment program, followed by a parole, probably in three years.

This week Jackson turned down a plea deal that would have landed her in prison for 20 years.
“Teenagers make stupid mistakes. They really do,” Jackson said The Daytona Beach News Journal reported.
“You’re learning from your mistakes after being locked in that cell 24/7 for eight months.
“Why should I do anything? I was shot eight times. Why should I do something like this again?
“It really doesn’t make sense. If I do anything again, I’ll have to be really stupid and slow.”
