"[Brinkman] kept saying that she needed to return the vehicle and that is why she was driving it. [Brinkman] stated she did not want to be left stranded if she stopped driving the vehicle," the officer wrote in the report.


Sounds totally reasonable to me. I mean if she returned the car how would she get home, she wouldn't have a car!!

Pretty sure this is a repeat from a while ago, unless this another case of a woman getting arrested for driving an overdue rental car.

No, this is another woman getting arrested. In Dacula, you will get locked up if you are late with your rental car.

She's hot, which normally would make her behavior legal.  Looks like someone got tired of her crap.

Wait, what?  She was told she has 1 week, and they arrest her?  What?  I don't get it.  Was she still driving it a week after she was told to bring it back?  Because I'm pretty sure if you rent a car that isn't stolen, get told to bring it back, and you don't, the police arrest you for driving a stolen car.

They told her she had a week.  If it was within that week, there is no crime here, simple as that.  If it was outside that week, she would have been driving a stolen vehicle anyway, because she'd be outside her lease and failing to release possession of the vehicle.

Non-news.

Bet that's her defense in court too.  That she had sincerely planned to (eventually) return it.

ProTip: Don't rent from Stolen Car Rental™ especially if the car repossesion company is the local police department.

Traditionally intent to return was a defense to the crime of larceny. In response to incidents of unauthorized car borrowing states adopted anti-joyriding laws. Where I live you can go to jail and lose your license for riding in a stolen (borrowed) car.

well, you're from the US. If I've understood your quaint customs correctly you can get arrested for anything at any time, unless you're unlucky and get shot in the head instead.

No. She said that she was told that she had one week. But she also said that police had warned her that the car was stolen, so the police already were looking for the car as having been stolen. Maybe someone other than the police, such as her boyfriend, had told her about a week.

Interestingly, the concept of joy-riding predates cars. Such laws were usually initiated to have a legal way of punishing your adult/near adult son from taking your horse and riding off to see a girl you didn't approve of, short of charging them with horse-theft (hangable) or disinheriting them (losing their labor on the farm).
