James Meyers, 37, was driving his 10-year-old daughter to school when he was pulled over for a broken taillight Tuesday morning at around 7:30 a.m.
The officer asked Meyers for his ID and walked back to his car behind him, Meyers told BuzzFeed News.
The officer returned about 30 minutes later and asked Meyers to come around to the back side of the car.
“I don’t know how to tell you this, but you have a warrant out for your arrest for not returning a VHS tape to J&J Video,” Meyers recalled the officer saying. “A tape called Freddy Got Fingered?”
“I started looking around like I’m being punked or on candid camera,” said Meyers, who is a well-known DJ in the area under Mad Influence. “I didn’t know if it was a prank or what was going on at first. I thought this must be a really elaborate prank.”
But the arrest warrant was genuine. Meyers was handcuffed and arrested later that afternoon for failing to return the movie he rented in November 2001 to J&J Video, which has since closed.
The warrant was first issued in February 2002 after the store, which was based in Salisbury, filed a complaint.
Meyers was charged with misdemeanor failure to return rented property, which is punishable by a maximum fine of $200.
Meyeres said he’s been through the court system before to gain custody of his daughter and has been pulled over for speeding. But none of those encounters with the law ever resulted in any action related to the arrest warrant. Via: Buzzfeed
