Woman Is Arrested for Failing to Return Videos

A 4-year-old girl cried, "Don't take my mommy to jail!" as deputies arrested her mother for failing to return a video game and three videotapes she had rented, including "Dumb and Dumber."

Denise Lawrence, 24, was taken to a magistrate's office Thursday, released without bail and told to appear in court in a week.

She was charged with failure to return rental property and could get up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine. Lawrence said she had forgotten about the rentals she got July 12 from the Video Club.
