A North Carolina man was arrested and charged this week for failing to return a VHS rental, "Freddy Got Fingered," to a now-defunct video store some 14 years ago.

James Meyers, from Concord, North Carolina, was served Tuesday with an arrest warrant and charged with failing to return rental property from 2002. It's a misdemeanor punishable by a fine up to $200, according to reports.

When Tom Green - who wrote, directed and starred (as Gord Brody) in the crude 2001 comedy - heard about the criminal charge, he said he wanted to help.

"If it's 200 bucks, of course I'll pay it for him," Green told the New York Daily News, "just for the principle of the thing."
