Lori Teel ARRESTED in front of her children for not returning Twilight book and DVD to library on time

A mother was arrested in front of her young children and spent the night in jail – all for not returning a Twilight book and DVD.

Lori Teel was arrested and handcuffed at her Portales, New Mexico home in front of her five small children on June 12.

She had borrowed $36 worth of library materials not returned since 2010.

Police had arrived at Mrs Teel’s home after receiving a call that her husband, Jimmy Teel, had assaulted someone, according to the Albuquerque Journal.

Her attorney, Eric Dixon, says arrest warrants were mailed last year to an address at which Mrs Teel hadn't lived since childhood.
