Woman cuffed, booked for not paying library fines

GRAFTON, Wis. - A Wisconsin woman has been arrested and booked for failing to pay her library fines.

Twenty-year-old Heidi Dalibor told the News Graphic in Cedarburg that she ignored the library's calls and letters as well as a notice to appear in court.

Still, she was surprised when officers with a warrant knocked on her door, cuffed her and took her to the police station to be fingerprinted and photographed.

Police Capt. Joe Gabrish says officers follow the same procedure with every warrant.

Library director John Hanson (grafton@esls.lib.wi.us) says a couple of dozen people are cited each year for failure to return materials or pay fines.

The incident cost Dalibor about $30 for the two overdue paperbacks. It cost her mother $172 to free her.

Thats getting a little out of hand. Wouldn't it make more sense to attach the debit to their credit report until paid?

Something like hat can't be done without losing your case in court.
