PICKENS COUNTY, S.C. —A Pickens County woman spent a night in jail for failing to return a movie she rented in 2005, according to Pickens County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Creed Hashe.

Kayla Michelle Finley, 27, was arrested on Thursday. She faces a misdemeanor charge of failure to return rented video cassette.

Chief Deputy Hashe said she rented the movie in 2005 from Dalton Videos in Pickens County, which is now out of business.

Hashe said when Finley didn't return the movie, the business owner went to a Pickens County magistrate who issued an arrest warrant.  Hashe says that Finley was sent several certified letters to turn herself in, but never did.

Hashe said that on Thursday, Finley was at the Sheriff's Office on another matter, and the active warrant was discovered. She was arrested, and spent Thursday night in jail until her bond hearing Friday morning.

A judge issued a $2,000 personal recognizance bond Friday morning, and she was released.
