Police: 'Twilight' Fan Lied About Bite Marks

Associated Press

February 14, 2011

MARATHON, Fla. (AP) – Authorities say a Florida teen has told police that bite marks on her body came from “Twilight”-inspired vampire role playing _ not from someone who attacked her while she was out jogging.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office has charged the 15-year-old girl with making a false report.

Authorities say the girl is a fan of the vampire-based “Twilight” movies and books. The sheriff’s office says the girl had engaged in “fantasy biting” with a 19-year-old man in August and worried her mother would see the marks. She told her mother she had been attacked while jogging.

When deputies couldn’t find evidence of the attack, the girl eventually revealed what really happened.

No charges have been filed against the 19-year-old man.

    Can someone say OBSESSIVE? I am a HUGE fan of Twilight but never in a million years would I have thought of this one. I guess you can buy teeth that actually penetrate the skin??? Weird.

    Is it just me or does that movie series inspire more weirdo's than anything ele?. What is with all these Vampire cults and killers recently. People are stupid. Keep telling yourself you are a vampire when u live at home with your parents, eat normal food daily, and go out into the sun.
