There may be a stereotype that old people are terrible with computers but one pensioner took it to the next level by shutting down the internet in Georgia.

Georgian police arrested the 75-year old lady who brought down internet services whilst digging for scrap metal. Slicing through an important fibre-optic cable she cut off internet connections in Georgia and neighbouring Armenia, forcing internet users in both countries offline.

Georgian interior ministry spokesman Zura Gvenetadze said, "She found the cable while collecting scrap metal and cut it with a view to stealing it."

The pensioner could face up to three years in prison if convicted.

"Taking into account her advancing years, she has been released pending the end of the investigation and subsequent trial," Gvenetadze said.

The attempted cable theft last week brought down internet services for several hours.
