Woman hauled off in cuffs for overdue fines

Heidi Dalibor of Wisconsin was arrested for not returning two overdue library books from her public library.

All told, the sad chapter in her life cost Dalibor $201: $30 for the overdue books, and $171 for the fines.

Incidentally, the two paperbacks Dalibor took out — “Angels and Demons,” a mystery novel by Dan Brown, and “White Oleander,” a 1999 novel by Janet Finch — can be bought new from Amazon.com for a total of $21.18 — or $4.41 used.
