Woman jailed for not returning 2005 video rental

Kayla Michelle Finley may be wishing that services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime had been around a little earlier.

The South Carolina woman spent a night in jail last week for failing to return a video she rented — in 2005.

It was a VHS tape. Of a Jennifer Lopez movie.

Finley, 27, was arrested Thursday in Pickens County, South Carolina, on a misdemeanor charge of failure to return the video, according to CNN affiliate WYFF-TV.

The movie, “Monster-In-Law,” starring Lopez and Jane Fonda as a feuding potential daughter- and mother-in-law, was rented from a video store, Dalton Videos, that is now out of business.

The WYFF report says Finley was at the county sheriff’s office on another matter when an active warrant for her arrest was discovered. Chief Deputy Creed Hashe told the station that the store’s owner had asked a Pickens County judge for the warrant years ago when Finley didn’t return her video.

Hashe said Finley had been sent several certified letters asking her to turn herself in.

Finley spent the night in jail because her bond hearing couldn’t be held until Friday morning. A judge released her on $2,000 bond
