Man Spends 10 Days In Jail For Overdue Library Books

This is crazy. I thought my bill collectors were bad but this is just nuts. An Iowa man was sentenced to 10 days in jail for overdue books and other items from the Newton Public Library. When the library couldn’t get in touch with him they called in the police and the city attorney. He was charged with misdemeanor theft since the 27 items were worth $770.67. On top of the 10 days in jail he was ordered pay restitution and a fine of $625. I really hope Maggie has overdue books — I’m turning her in!

Check out the full story at The Smoking Gun.

This reminds me of Mr. Bookman the library cop from ‘Seinfeld.’
