If you're going to risk arrest with an unreturned VHS rental of a 2001 classic of American cinema, at least make it a copy of Freddy Got Fingered.

Fourteen years worth of late fees landed James Meyers behind bars shortly after he was pulled over by police in Concord on Tuesday morning, according to WSOC-TV.

Meyers said the officers were very polite and professional.

In lieu of arresting Meyers on the scene of the traffic stop, the officer allowed Meyers to arrange a time to come to the Concord Police Department to be served with the arrest warrant... "'Apparently you rented the movie 'Freddy Got Fingered" and never returned it.' I thought he was joking".

Not returning rental property is a Class 3 misdemeanor in North Carolina and punishable by a fine of up to $200. Even though the video store that originally filed the complaint has long since gone out of business, the suspect was still given a April 27 court date for not returning the decades old VHS tape to J&J;'s Video in Kannapolis.

Freddy's star, comedian Tom Green, has since tweeted about the news and reached out to Meyers to offer to pay his fine.

"They're not focusing on the crimes I think they should be focusing on", said Meyers.

Other categories on the spreadsheet included " core group plus ", " core group negative " and " hostile group ". A spokesperson for Mr Corbyn said: "It doesn't come from this office and we have no knowledge of it".

Why did Meyers have "Freddy Got Fingered" for 14 years?

Green is on tour in Australia at the moment but told the New York Daily News that he was happy to support fans of his film.

"That blows my mind", Meyers said.

He admitted to the officer he only vaguely remembers renting it. Sounds about right for a movie that many consider one of the worst ever made.

After dropping his daughter off at school, Meyers went to the police station and turned himself in.

The Concord Police Department has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.
