A Woman Got Thrown In Jail For Failing To Return A VHS Tape She Rented In 2005

Who said VHS technology is irrelevant? Apparently it can get you thrown in the slammer, as in the case of 27-year-old Kayla Finley from South Carolina. Finley rented “Monster In-Law” in 2005 and apparently forgot to return the damn thing. This resulted in a $2,000 dollar fine her spending the night in jail.

The owner of the video store filed a complaint a few years ago and apparently there has been a warrant out for Finley’s arrest since then.

In case you were wondering, a VHS copy of “Monster In-Law” currently sells on eBay for 50 cents.

Finley posted her entire story on Storify:
