Albuquerque, N.M. • A New Mexico woman was arrested and spent a night in jail for not returning the book Twilight and two-DVD set “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” back to the library on time.

The Albuquerque Journal reports Lori Teel was arrested and handcuffed at her Portales home in front of her five small children earlier this month for the $36 worth of library materials not returned since 2010.

Her attorney says arrest warrants were mailed last year to an address at which Teel hadn’t lived since childhood, but Teal was arrested by officers investigating a disturbance.

Her charges were dismissed.
