N.C. jails wrong man for 1 week

Jesse Ray Hardy Jr. of Greenville was thrown in jail for a week because he has the same name and hometown of a man wanted by the law. Only Hardy is 44, and the police were looking for a 21-year-old. They eventually freed him, but he didn't have a way home. Instead of, you know, DRIVING him there, the court took up a collection of $58 for a bus ticket and dinner at Hardee's. Mmm, Hardee's.
