Woman Arrested Because of Overdue Library Books

Psst! Got an overdue library book? Didn't think that they could do anything about it? Well, think again - Heidi Dalibor of Grafton, Wisconsin, just got arrested for failing to return books she checked out from a library:

Heidi Dalibor was arrested after she failed to return the books, "Angels and Demons" and "White Oleander", last year.

“I said, what could they possibly do? They can’t arrest me for this… I was wrong,” Dalibor said.

Dalibor did not respond to four notices from the library, two phone calls and two letters. The library forwarded the case to police, who issued a citation for Dalibor's failure to return the materials or pay the fine. The citation included a court date, which Dalibor admits she ignored.

With arrest warrant in hand, police showed up at Dalibor’s door and led her away in handcuffs.

And find out why she's still not returning the books: Link - Thanks Tiffany!

Library books are the property of the purchasing and owning institutions; ie; local, county and state governments through tax payers. So, the kid, by not returning the books after being repeatedly notified, was basically stealing government property bought via the tax payers dole.

that's what she was arrested for, non appearance at a court date, she got there by not paying county fines, she got them by not returning her books.

as soon as you are issued a fine and you fail to pay it, you go into the legal grinder and you have to be a "retread"* to not figure out that you'll eventually go to jail.

Scofflaw. You will submit to the law or you will pay the consequences.

Order must be maintained and the unruly must be taught a lesson. She should spend a minimum of 1 year in a penitentiary.
