Texas Man Arrested Over Overdue Library Book

copperascoveA Texas man was arrested this week for not returning a library book that he had checked more than three years ago and did  not return, according to reports.

Here is more from KWTX.com: “On Wednesday Jory Enck was booked into jail and released for overdue library materials. Court documents show he checked out a GED study guide in 2010 and didn’t respond to attempts from the library to get the book back. City of Copperas Cove Municipal Judge Bill Price said the patrons are usually released on a $200 bond after the arrest. Library policies show the patron must have the overdue book checked out for a minimum of 90 days and not respond to phone calls or emails from the library about the book before the municipal court is notified.”

According to the judge, while it may seem harsh, the law gives librarians more power to enforce overdue book penalties. Do you think that this law is too extreme? (Via Fox News).
