An out-of-business video store in South Carolina just taught a former customer a very hard lesson -- DON'T BAIL ON RETURNING VIDEOS OR YOU'LL BE ARRESTED!!!!!

Kayla Finley was arrested Thursday when she visited the Pickens County Sheriff's Office on an unrelated matter ... and according to reports cops discovered she had a nearly 10-year-old warrant.

Turns out Kayla allegedly rented "Monster-in-Law" from Dalton Video in 2005 but never returned it ... so the store owner got the police involved before going out of business.

It's unclear when Dalton Video went out of business ... but cops say they've been trying to get in touch with her about the warrant for years and never heard back.

Kayla swore she never got a notice -- but was hauled off to jail anyway ... and released a few hours later on bond.

The charge she's facing: "failure to return rented video cassette."

Fun Fact: "Monster-in-Law" has a 16% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

I guess they have solved all crime in Pickens County so they are free to arrest someone on a 10 year old warrant on behalf of a business that no longer exists that is some crack police work.

This might be a little funny, but I think it is actually a case of gross police misconduct and a violation of civil liberties. This shouldn't happen to anyone.

BS on never getting notice. She blew it off originally, and when the guy went out of business, she figured that ended things. I wonder what she was doing at the police station to begin with.
