Aaron Henson, a man in Littleton, Colorado, was arrested for not returning a DVD to his local library. Henson was stopped for a traffic violation, and then quickly booked and taken to jail. Even his mother didn't believe him when he said that he had been arrested for not returning library materials.
Library budgets have been slashed, so issuing summons over missing materials has been one way to try to save money. The summons, if not dealt with, can lead to an arrest warrant, which is what Aaron Henson went through.
