Video: Art Deaner Accidentally Picks Up Wrong Girl from School, Almost Arrested

| by Michael Allen

Art Deaner was almost arrested after he picked up the wrong little girl at a school and drove away with her in Gloucester City, New Jersey.

Deaner was supposed to pick up six-year-old Courtney Fetters, but instead he drove away with nine-year-old Courtney Durr, reports the Daily Mail.

Deaner told NBC News: "I told her I was looking for Courtney. And the young girl said her name was Courtney."

Durr was expecting one of her mother's friends to bring her home, so she climbed into Deaner's car.

Durr told NBC News: "I got off the bus and he pulled up and he asked if there was a Courtney. My crossing guard let me go and I went with him.'"

Deaner realized he had the wrong girl several blocks later when he asked her about a family vacation.

Durr said: "He was like, 'You weren't with Aunt Mary in Maine?' No, I would never have been in Maine."

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Deaner said: "I know Courtney was in Maine for two weeks. I had to turn around and take her back. I got the wrong Courtney."

The crossing guard, who let Durr climb into Deaner's car, had already contacted the police and given Deaner's license plate number to them.

Police pulled Deaner over and nearly arrested him for abduction, but logic finally prevailed and there were no charges.

Both Courtneys were reunited with their mothers, until the next wacky episode of their fascinating lives.
