A North Carolina man has been arrested after he failed to return a movie he rented 14 years ago.

James Meyers said he was pulled over for driving his car with a defective taillight on Tuesday when the police officer told him there was a warrant out for his arrest.

In 2002, Mr Meyers rented the comedy Freddie Got Fingered from J&J's Video, which has since closed.

He had been charged with failure to return rental property, a misdemeanour.

"The officer said, 'I don't know how to tell you this but there's a warrant out for your arrest from 2002. ... I thought he was joking," Mr Meyers told WSOC, a local TV station.

"For the first time I got put in handcuffs."

He was booked at the police station and was given a court date, but the charge was later dismissed. He faced a fine of $200 (£140).

Freddie Got Fingered, about an out-of-work cartoonist who moves in with his parents, was criticised by critics and was considered a disappointment at the box office when it was released in 2001.
