If anyone should be doing hard time on account of this crime against cinema, it's Jane Fonda and future Amateur Hour hostess, JLo, not some poor simp in South Carolina who failed to return a VHS copy of their monumental pile of multiplex guano, Monster-In-Law.
TMZ reports Kayla Finley was thrown in jail after a visit to the local cop house on an unrelated matter turned up a ten-year-old warrant for her arrest issued by the Pickens County Sheriff's Office.
The alleged tape was rented from Dalton Video in 2005, never to be returned! Even though the store had long gone under, and with VHS copies going for a penny-a-piece on Amazon, the bulls still decided to slap on the manacles and slam shut the cell door.
In her defense, Kayla pleaded ignorance, but we knew that from her choice of rentals. Bond was posted a few hours later.
While I can understand not wanting to part with a copy Monster-In-Law — you'll have to pry my deluxe Blu-ray edition from my cold, dead hands — is it legal to jail someone for not returning a video rental?
