NC Man Arrested After Not Returning a VHS Tape

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.

Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine

We have been conditioned to think that law enforcement officers will not give us a speeding ticket for traveling 1 to 9 miles per hour over the speed limit. However, according to a new initiative in North Carolina called “Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine”, law enforcement officers will also be paying attention to drivers who are driving even slightly above the limit. 

If you are one of the unfortunate souls who receives a speeding ticket in North Carolina, make sure that you call an experienced Winston-Salem traffic attorney to represent you.  Paying the ticket is the equivalent of pleading guilty, and if you plead guilty to a speeding ticket, you will likely receive points that may affect your insurance.

Therefore, call us today at (336) 725-6559 for a free consultation.  Our office is located in downtown Winston-Salem, but in addition to handling traffic tickets in Forsyth County, we also handle North Carolina traffic tickets in the following counties:  Davie, Davidson, Guilford, and Yadkin.
