Woman jailed, accused of failing to return video

Posted: Updated:
The owner of a now-closed video store in South Carolina has decided to drop charges against a woman accused of failing to return a movie nearly a decade ago.

Pickens County sheriff's deputies said the owner decided to not pursue the charge because of the media attention that 27-year-old Kayla Michelle Finley's arrest received.

Finley rented the movie "Monster-in-Law" from Dalton Videos in 2005. The owner took out a warrant against Finley, and she was arrested last week when she was at the sheriff's office for something else and the warrant was found. Finley spent the night in jail before she was released.

Working phone numbers for Finley and the defunct store's owner could not be found.

Finley spent a night in jail and was released on a $2,000 personal recognizance bond, according to authorities. If convicted, she could have faced up to 30 days in jail and $500 in court fines.
