Twilight Fan Arrested After 'Filming' Robert Pattinson


A Twilight fan is facing three-years in jail for using her camera at a birthday party inside a cinema screening of the film.

Samantha Tumpach, 22, was jailed for two nights in Chicago, after security staff saw her using her point-and-shoot camera inside the cinema during a screening of Twilight: New Moon.

Tumpach was at the cinema on Saturday celebrating her sister's surprise 29th birthday with friends.

She admitted to police there were small snippets - less than three minutes - of the film on her camera but claims she was just documenting the party and not trying to make a copy of the film.

Tumpach was pulled out of the cinema when a worker saw her recording video during the movie.
She was charged with one count of criminal use of a motion picture exhibition - a serious charged aimed at people who are attempting to bootleg films.

"It was a big thing over nothing," Tumpach said.

"We were just messing around. Everyone is so surprised it got this far." Managers from the theatre contacted police who examined the small digital camera.

Police spokesman Frank Siciliano said: "Officers found that Tumpach had taped two very short segments of the movie - no more than four minutes total."

Cinema managers, however, insisted on pressing charges.

Tumpach was jailed for two nights until she could appear in court on Monday, where a judge ordered her released on bail.

She plans to fight the charge in court because she said she did nothing wrong - and did not attempt to secretly tape the film.

Sorry, she deserved it! EVERYBODY knows you are not allowed to take pictures inside a movie theater, especially a video! Surely she can not say she was "unaware" of that rule.
