A Littleton, Colorado judge issued an arrest warrant for a 19 year old who borrowed a $30 DVD from the library and failed to return it. The city council fired 30 year Municipal Judge James Kimmel. Turns out the judge issued a summons for Aaron Henson to appear in court, but the summons was never served on Henson so he failed to appear in court. The judge then issued an arrest warrant. Seven days after Henson returned the DVD and the library wrote a letter to the judge to inform him of the return, Henson was arrested during a routine traffic stop. The city found that the judge had issued 71 other arrest warrants when people had not be served.
