Woman arrested for failing to return VHS tape from 2005

Updated:

A South Carolina woman spent a night in jail for failing to return a VHS tape she rented nearly 10 years ago.

According to police, the woman went to the sheriff’s office last week to file an unrelated report.

When her name was flagged for an outstanding arrest warrant for the video, she was arrested.

Many people say the sheriff’s office went too far, but authorities said they had no choice because she was at the station.
