Actress and new mother Tika Sumpter took to Twitter to share some advice: “Turn in your library books!”  

Apparently her mother, Janice Acquista, was recently arrested in North Carolina for nothing more than a $10 balance for an overdue library book. 

But the Southside With You star stressed that never should such a fee resulted in an arrest.

Despite numerous questions from fans and the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office telling Page Six that Acquista was arrested for a bad check, Sumpter continued to stand by her story that her mother was arrested for a measly ten bucks. 

But the real tea is that according to the actress, her mom returned the book a while back, but it was never put into the system, says CBS Philly.
