Thousands of dedicated fans turned out over the weekend to see "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1." But for one teenage girl, the tragedy of not making it was a lot worse than choosing between Jacob or Edward.

Police in Illinois arrested an "extremely upset" 18-year-old girl on Saturday after she told authorities that she crashed her car because her boyfriend did not take her to see the new Twilight movie.

Cops found Olivia Christina Ornelas "extremely intoxicated" and after discovering her car, missing the front right tire and spun out in a ditch off Route 71, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

"Ornelas advised that she was extremely upset with her boyfriend because she did not see the movie Twilight like they were supposed to," according to a Kendall County police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

The film grossed an estimated $140 million over its opening weekend.

Ornelas is charged with driving under the influence and unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor. Authorities released her after she posted $300 bond.
