Clerical Error Leads to Massachusetts Woman's Arrest

A Massachusetts woman was pulled over by police over a clerical error made nine years ago, reported.

Karyn Meunier, 39, of Haverhill, Mass., was driving to work in October 21 when an officer arrested her for skipping out on jury duty in 2000.

Meunier said she had resolved the issue years ago and that she has since served jury duty.

An error, possibly linked to a national database that police have access to in their patrol cars, failed to clear the warrant for Meunier's arrest, reported.

Meunier was detained in jail for 30 minutes with other inmates she characterized as hardened criminals. She called the experience terrifying.
