Rental Car Returned Seven Months Late

A man who rented a car from Enterprise Rent-A-Car in October is just now returning the vehicle, seven months later, according to a Moon Patch article.

Nicholas Balzer turned himself in to the police after learning that there was a warrant out for his arrest. The police were charging him with felony theft of leased property and unauthorized use of the vehicle.

Balzer failed to return the car in November and acquired close to $900 in late fees.

According to the Moon Patch article, Balzer is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing June 21 in Coraopolis District Court.

    Sounds like his late fee's should have been close to $9,000 not $900.

    How did he only aquire $900.00 in late fees if the vehicle was returned 7 months late?
