Colorado teen arrested for not returning library DVD
LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) – A teenager who forgot to return a DVD to a Littleton library was arrested for failing to appear at court to respond to the charge.
The father of 19-year-old Aaron Henson says his son never got the court summonses because they were being sent to an old address. Authorities discovered Henson had a warrant for failing to appear in court during a traffic stop a couple of weeks ago.
Henson’s father, Allen Henson, says the family spent more than $900 in court fees, getting the teen out of jail and his car out of an impound lot, and paying for the DVD.
Littleton Mayor Doug Clark told KMGH-TV Thursday that the city is changing its policy because of the Henson case and will no longer arrest people for not returning DVDs.
