'Twilight' Date Ditched, Arrested for DUI

Cue the deep voice: In a world … where a rabid Twilight fan gets ditched by her date, there's one way to make reality bite even more: Crash a car, and get arrested for DUI.

Olivia Ornelas, 18, of Aurora, Ill., was "extemely upset" when sheriff's deputies nabbed her Nov. 18 -- all because her dopey BF didn't take her on a movie date.

But getting ditched by her beau was just the opening act in Ornelas' action-adventure that fateful Friday night, WMAQ-TV reports.

You see, Ornelas had her sights set on the new Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn Part 1. It was the film's opening night, no less. Her significant other, apparently, had other plans -- in which the teen vampire-slash-werewolf flick would be playing no role.

That made Ornelas howling mad. The plot thickened as she decided to drown her frustrations with booze. It's not clear how much Ornelas had to drink, but it led to somewhat of a real cliffhanger.

She got behind the wheel of a car ... The car somehow lost its right front tire ... And ended up in a ditch on the side of a road.

Deputies at the scene noted Ornelas was "extremely intoxicated." She was taken into custody, posed for a pair of mug shots, and spent the night in jail.

Ornelas was set free hours later, after posting $300 bond. Ornelas faces charges of drunken driving and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor, The Huffington Post reports -- a sobering denoument for the ditched Twilight fan.

Will there be a sequel? Only Ornelas can tell, as her tireless Twilight DUI crash saga makes its way around the Internet. Ornelas may have suffered a broken heart from not seeing Breaking Dawn, but at least she didn't break any bones.
