Man Arrested for Failing to Return a “Freddie Got Fingered” VHS He Rented in 2002

So, here in America, Hillary Clinton can continue to run for president even though pretty much everyone including her knows that she’s broken some pretty heft laws regarding classified government information on her private email server, but the average person can be arrested while taking his daughter to school because he forgot to return a VHS tape 14 years ago that’s probably worth… what? Fifty whole cents at a garage sale?

This just happened to a man named James Meyers in North Carolina. He was pulled over by police because of a bad tail light and the officer found the old warrant from 2002 for failing to return a VHS of the movie Freddie Got Fingered.

At least the officer who pulled him over allowed the guy to take his kid to school and go to work (so, you know, he wouldn’t also lose his job over a VHS tape of a really lame movie) if he promised to turn himself in later that day.

Meyers was charged with “failure to return rental property”. Not that you shouldn’t return things you rent, but come on. Is the VHS store even still in business at this point? Actually, no. It isn’t. The store, J&J Video, has apparently been closed for a decade now:

Meyers, a drum and bass musician, said he had never been arrested before, and said the ordeal was very humiliating. “They took my belt, I was trying to hold my pants up while trying to sign papers,” he said. “It was very embarrassing.”

“It scared my daughter,” he said. “She thought I was going to jail for a bad brake light.”

Meyers rented the VHS from J&J Video in Salisbury, North Carolina, according to police. “The store has been closed for about 10 years now, if I’m not mistaken,” he said.

Even comedian Tom Green, who starred in “Freddie Got Fingered,” can’t believe this is real.

Then again, this is also a country where you can get raided by U.S. marshals for failing to pay a 30-year-old $1500 student loan.

America… where justice always gets served!

    One more reason to buy a firearm. If he had tried to purchase one this would have come to light during the background check, possibly years earlier.

  • Meyers Got Fingered

    One more criminal off the streets and in the debtors prison. I am so relived that this violator isn’t roaming the streets.

  • YeahRightOkay

    …its about time this super criminal gets caught…after all he knew he had superior intelligence compared to the ordinary thief…

  • sunshine ✓ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ ˢᵘᵖᵖᵒʳᵗᵉʳ

    How humiliating that the world knows he rented that movie.

  • Smarty

    It’s a “free country”, as long as you do as you are told. The sheep in this country are so eager to pass new laws and build walls around themselves that they can’t even comprehend what they are actually doing to themselves. The fact that we have more laws than the rest of the world combined and yet we employ “law makers” says it all. All while the general sheepulation screams for more laws and more policing…..

  • Tatiana Covington

    What’s a VHS? 2016 and all that.

    • qweztionz5

      a weapon of mass destruction favored by terrorists and supervillians, thank God they caught him in time!

      • Tatiana Covington

        Could have been worse than 9/11 if they hadn’t hopped to it pronto. What a relief!

    • I hope you aren’t about to claim, as a local jackass has, that CDs have been obsolete for 20 years.

  • Mike

    Laws are only for the serfs. All of you know that already.

    • qweztionz5

      I trust her Highness, the Countess of Arkansas found some amusement in this quaint article.

    • That would be OK if only serfs wrote them.

  • doucyet

    Oh the horror! Lynch the man…………

    Kill “suspected” criminals with a drone (not to mention the innocent)……….no prob! Wipe out countries after lies allow you to…….no prob! Murder a man in the snow because he dared stand up to the man……….no prob!

    Forget to return a video tape that is ancient technology to a closed store…………your ass is going to jail!!

    and the insanity continues and will continue until you DEMAND that they prove that their laws apply to you, just because you are physically in a particular geographic area! FYI, they CAN’T PROVE ANY OF IT APPLIES TO YOU, THEY NEVER COULD AND THEY NEVER WILL! IT’S ALL FRAUD!
    They apply their laws capriciously and arbitrarily on you and that in and of itself is a violation of their own rules of due process!! They commit fraud on everyone that they arrest for breaches of FAKE STATUTORY RULES, what they call their laws!

    So, here in America, Hillary Clinton can continue to run for president
    even though she’s broken some pretty hefty laws regarding classified government information on her private email server

    That’s petty crime compared to her using the position of Secretary of State to stall big international deals until the seller and the buyer make multi-million dollar “contributions” to the Clinton Foundation. Like, for instance, Saudi Arabia buying fighter jet aircraft from Boeing. Shortly after the Saudis and Boeing ponied up, the deal got legs. There were many like this, and a timeline has been created that makes simple coincidence an impossibility.

    Will charges for these these treasonous crimes ever be brought by Obama’s Department of (in)Justice? Do not wait under water for it.

      and bumping off Vince Foster!

      • She just had the body moved, according to the account in Roger Stone’s “The Clintons’ war on women.”

  • SonsofAnarchy5768
    12 year old gets arrested for pinching a boys butt, even worse then this arrest, kids can not even be kids anymore (because people allow this kind of stuff to happen)

  • I doubt that the statute of limitations for theft under $100 is anywhere near 14 years.

  • Ken, Megapolis

    Not that I have the slightest interest in perverse fingering videos (OK I sometimes read page 3 of the Sun newspaper LOL) but for those who are into videos they can be accessed online for free just like that.
    VK appear to have bowed to pressure to take down copyrighted content. Russians kept copies of anything you might remotely be interested in. But I’m sure the content has been duplicated and moved to other filesharing sites.
    But I never need to look outside YouTube for fun videos that more than satisfy anyway.
    But one still laments the passing of a popular rental store.

    Example: A contractOR (government under Title 26) issues you (contractEE) a bill through their third party collection service (IRS), you do not respond. Third party collector service, whose actions and remedies are defined in Title 15, goes to court ex-parte and receives a nihil dicit judgement. You get dragged into a foreign court (USDC) and attempt to fight the contractOR and their rules for issuing the bill under the Constitution and/or Title 26, neither of which applies, since it is the bill being discussed not the entity that issued the bill or how said entity determined the amount. Any attorney would tell you this is a waste of time. You (contractEE) must first void the bill under the appropriate code (Title 15) and demand the case be kept in the proper jurisdiction (nearest judicial district).

    In essence, Title 26 applies to the government entity that determined the bill and Title 15 applies to the collection agency attacking you for payment. It’s almost incomprehensible to believe that legally Title 26, THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE has little to do with the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE. This appears to be a well orchestrated word trick.

  • It is not Paranoia

    One of the most fucked up and brilliant movies! I would go to jail for that!
