Breaking News: 100-Year Old Vampire Arrested in Lorain County

Wait, you dont look anything like Robert Pattinson.
  • Wait, you don't look anything like Robert Pattinson.

Andrew Whiteman might look like your normal twenty-something kid out for a good time on a Saturday night, but he claims he's a 100-year old vampire.

That's what cops in Lorain County found out Saturday when they arrested Whiteman, who was muddy, drunk, and wet at the time, for breaking into a drug store, presumably to steal those little wax fangs kids wear around Halloween, but that's unconfirmed.

Channel 19 Action News has the details:

The college-aged man became verbally abusive to the arresting officers, and threatened to kill one deputy and his family. He then taunted that he could smell the officers blood from the backseat of the cruiser.

Whiteman was placed in restraints after arriving at the jail, but not before telling a female employee that he wanted to eat her kidney.

He's due to appear before a judge in Oberlin Municipal Court on April 28th at 2PM.

At that time the judge will let the world know whether Whiteman sparkles, or whether he just digs kidneys.
