PICKENS, S.C. (AP) — It was not a pile of late fees a South Carolina woman got when a video store owner said she failed to return a video she rented in 2005. Instead, she spent a night in jail.

Twenty-seven-year-old Kayla Michelle Finley of Pickens was arrested last week and charged with failing to return a rented video cassette.

Pickens County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Creed Hashe says Finley rented the movie “Monster-in-Law” from Dalton Videos. The owner took out a warrant against Finley, who was arrested when she was at the sheriff’s office for something else and the warrant was found.

Hashe says Finley had been sent several certified letters at the time. She tells WHNS-TV that she never got the letters and that she will fight the charge.
