A man from Concord North Carolina has been arrested for failing to return a VHS rental copy of the movie Freddy Got Fingered.
Apparently he was pulled over for the crime of driving with a tail-light not working and then promptly arrested for not returning the tape he rented 14 years ago.
According to the arresting officer he said to James Meyers, a local resident ‘I don’t know how to tell you this but there’s a warrant out for your arrest from 2002. Apparently you rented the movie “Freddy Got Fingered” and never returned it.’
Meyers complained “That hour the cops sat out there with me, the hour and a half I was down in the magistrate’s office could have been spent somewhere else.”
Of course the true horror of this crime is that the man had to admit in open court that he had indeed rented Freddy Got Fingered, a movie that somehow managed an undeservedly high 4.6 score.
Personally I would have been horrified that people knew I had rented the piece of crap movie.
