North Carolina Man Arrested for Refusing to Leave JailS

Rodney Dwayne Valentine was released on Saturday morning from Rockingham County jail after spending over two months locked up on charges of injury to personal property. Upon release, Valentine asked for a lift to a nearby motel. Everyone in the sheriff's office was like, "No way," so Valentine refused to leave and just sat there, apparently. After a few hours, officers suggested that Valentine take a cab. He still refused to leave.

Eventually officers rearrested Valentine on charges of trespassing. He's currently being held on $500 bond, with a court date scheduled for August 9th.

The lesson here, I think, is that North Carolina's jails are nicer than their cabs.
