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.
