Twilight DUI Arrest

NOVEMBER 21--Meet Olivia Ornelas.

Early Saturday morning, a deputy with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office spotted the 18-year-old Illinois woman’s car in a ditch off Route 71. “Upon further investigation,” the cop determined that Ornelas “was driving with no right front tire and was extremely intoxicated.”

According to a sheriff’s report, Ornelas offered an explanation, of sorts, for her erratic behavior:

“Ornelas advised that she was extremely upset with her boyfriend because she did not see the movie Twilight like they were suppose too.”

While missing a screening of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part I” can, understandably, put a fan into a tailspin, Ornelas’s excuse did not fly with cops, who charged her with DUI and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor.

Ornelas was released from custody Saturday after posting $300 bond. (1 page)
