Arrest of the Year
In Sweden, off-duty police officers who are not in uniform can still arrest suspected criminals, especially if they are in bikini.

Even if she was half naked, police officer Mikaela Kellner was able to help catch a suspected thief. Based on the photo above, which trended on social media, she takes her job seriously as she pins the suspect to the ground.

"My first intervention while wearing a bikini during my 11 years as a police officer," she wrote on Instagram.

While Kellner and three friends were sunbathing last 27 July in RĂ„lambshov park in Stockholm, a homeless man selling newspapers approached. When he refused to take no for an answer, but instead lingered around their blankets, she started suspecting that something was wrong, she told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

After he left, one friend noticed her phone was missing. Kellner and a fellow police officer gave chase.

She explained that the man had used his magazines to cover the mobile phone, picking it up without anyone noticing when he left. Let's just say this was a decision he would soon come to regret.

"There was no time, so I ran after him, maybe 15 metres or so. One of my friends is also a police officer, so we got hold of him. He tried to get away so we held onto him harder," she said.

They called their colleagues on duty who were able to get there to arrest him. Kellner said she didn't hesitate to make the arrest while wearing a bikini.

"If I had been naked I would have intervened as well," she said.
