This really happened! Man arrested for not returning VHS tape ‘Freddy Got Fingered’ he rented in 2002

In 2002, a man from Concord, North Carolina, rented and failed to return a VHS movie … little did he know that he would be arrested for it 14 years later in 2016.

James Myers was pulled over for a broken tail light when he was informed by the officer that he had a warrant for his arrest. Myers was cooperative with police but has questioned its use of resources, saying, “You got the ISIS stuff going on and here I am losing half my day over a VHS tape.”

Myers posted the story on his YouTube channel which can be seen below.

The story even shocked Tom Green, star of “Freddy Got Fingered,” the movie Myers failed to return.

The Daily News reported that Tom Green offered to help Myers with legal expenses if necessary. As you might expect, the video store from which he rented the tape has long since gone out of business.
