The long-gone days of VHS movie rentals came back to haunt one Concord, North Carolina resident on Tuesday. James Meyers was arrested for failing to return a VHS copy of Freddy Got Fingered he rented way back in 2002. According to WSOCTV, Meyers was driving his daughter to school when police pulled him over for driving with a tail-light out. After running his plates, the officer asked Meyers to step out of the vehicle. Meyers explains:

The officer said, 'I don’t know how to tell you this but there’s a warrant out for your arrest from 2002. Apparently you rented the movie "Freddy Got Fingered" and never returned it.' I thought he was joking.
