CONCORD, NC (WBTV) -

A Concord man says he was arrested after being pulled over during a traffic stop for a movie he forgot to return more than 15 years ago.

According to Concord Police, officers pulled over James Meyers Jr. Tuesday night and found that he had a warrant for his arrest that has been pending since 2002, The warrant was issued by J&J Video out of Salisbury.

Meyer posted on his Facebook page that he didn't return a VHS version of Tom Green's "Freddy Got Fingered" in 2001 and noted that the video store closed down more than a decade ago.

According to police, the officer allowed Meyers to arrange a time to come to the Concord Police Department to be served with the arrest warrant. Meyers reportedly came to police later that day to be served.

Meyers was handcuffed and taken to the Cabarrus County Magistrates Office where he gave a written promise to appear in court. According to police, officers are required by policy to handcuff anyone in custody prior to entering the secured area inside of the magistrate’s office.

Meyers story circulated online after he was arrested and his friend sent information to actor Tom Green, whose movie wasn't returned.

"Tom Green calls me from Australia at 1:30 a.m. to personally apologize for what happened," Meyers wrote on his Facebook page early Thursday morning. "[He] told me he couldn't believe what went down."

"When I answered the phone he said 'DADDY WOULD YOU LIKE SOME SAUSAGE??'" Meyers said quoting a famous line from the movie. "I just about died."

Green tweeted about Meyers' arrest as well, saying "I just saw this and I am struggling to believe it is real."

WTF

Funny about this story is that I found a VHS Video tape under the passager side in my car. So I took it back to the Rental video store and was expecting huge late fee charge but surprisly he told me on the computer it showed that its still here in the store.. We thought the Employee at that time might accdently put that VHS next to my movies when someone brought the tape back in and it got scanned...

But when I think about it.. I think my ex-best friend stole it and put it under the car passager side. I fucking hate thieves, I even got mad at him for stealing stuff from Kmart.

I'm glad I'm not with him anymore..Fucking Scumbag!

Er, don't most video stores just keep your deposit and charge you if you lose the tape?

In the last said 15 years, I have never yet once heard any Freddy/Green defender quote any other line or scene from the movie.
ANY other line. 15 years. There's a reason for that.

(Another good question might also be, what the heck DID happen to Tom Green, anyway? Last time anyone saw him was competing against Andrew Dice Clay and Pauly Shore on a season of Celebrity Apprentice, and he was still a bigger asshole offscreen than the other two combined.)

I don't remember much about that movie, to be honest.


The only scenes I remember involved that poor kid.

I can probably see why this movie is considered a really tasteless flick.
