In 2002, James Meyers rented a VHS tape, “Freddy Got Fingered.” The video rental store, which is no longer in business, alleged that the video was never returned. As a result, the store filed a charged against him for the misdemeanor of Failure to Return Rental Property.
Meyers was stopped recently for a minor a traffic violation, and he was then informed that he had an outstanding arrest warrant for allegedly not returning the video. After having the warrant served, Meyers’ court date was scheduled for April 27, 2016. Due to the age of the case and the fact that the store is no longer in business, I would not be surprised if this case is ultimately dismissed.
