Blame It On Edward: Teenager Pins DUI Crash On ‘Twilight’
An Illinois teenager blamed her drunken driving this weekend on extreme emotional distress caused by missing ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn.’ Um, what?!
Weird news of the day: An 18-year-old girl got super drunk and crashed her car… and blamed it on Twilight. Is this really how we’re raising our children these days?
You heard me. According to The Chicago Sun-Times, Illinois native Olivia Ornelas was charged on Saturday night with drunken driving and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor after the cops found her car in a ditch. Even better, she was apparently driving with only three tires, as the police also discovered that her right front tire was mysteriously missing.
Want to know what she told the cops?
I’m… actually speechless. Really? I mean… really?!
Although to be honest, I’m mostly curious about what happened to the missing tire. Did someone from Team Jacob discover that Olivia was Team Edward and subsequently decide that the only way to wage war on the opposing faction was to force them to drive with an odd number of tires? The world may never know.
The Smoking Gun somehow managed to acquire the whole police report from the incident; check it out here.
Tell us: Is this ridiculous? Or is this RIDICULOUS?
