Oh, those crazy Twilight superfans and the shenanigans they get up to. Today we meet an 18-year-old girl who was arrested for DUI after cops found her car in a ditch missing its right front tire. Her explanation? Her boyfriend wouldn't take her to see Breaking Dawn.

The arrest occurred in the wee small hours of Saturday, Nov. 19, in the Aurora, Ill., area. An officer discovered the car in the ditch and allegedly found Olivia Ornelas "extremely intoxicated," so extremely intoxicated that she'd been driving (or trying to drive) without her right front tire.

Ornelas told police "that she was extremely upset with her boyfriend because she did not see the movie Twilight like they were suppose [sic] to," according to the police report obtained by The Smoking Gun. She was arrested for driving under the influence and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor and was released after posting a $300 bond. No injuries were reported, and no other vehicles were involved.

It's unclear why she couldn't have gone to see the film through some other means, without her boyfriend, but apparently this girl was quite distraught over missing opening night. Maybe she just wanted that special Twilight couples experience and didn't get it.

Either way, drunk driving is certainly never the answer. Next time just have a DVD marathon of the other three flicks and eat some butter rum ice cream or something.
