Lorretta Cole of North Baddesley has been getting a tad fed up with her neighbours' kids' cricket ball constantly landing in her garden.
One day it damaged her car, and she decided not to hand it back.
A classic neighbourhood dispute!
What happened next was not so "classic".
Mrs Cole was visited on three occasions by officers from Hampshire Police, who tried to persuade her to return it.
They warned her she could be arrested for theft, but she continued to hold on to the ball.
She was arresyed and detained for 5 hours while she was questioned and had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken.
Whilst I can see that, "technically", refusing to hand back the ball could be construed as "theft" and possibly also "wasting police time".
Surely questioning her for 5 hours and taking her DNA was a tad OTT?
She has now been released on bail, pending advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, and will have to return to the police station next month.
The ball has been seized by police as evidence.
