A Florida woman with a history of violent behavior got a little bent over a plate of leftovers.
Police are saying Melissa Dawn Sellers set her roommate on fire after she discovered he had discarded over her coveted plate of spaghetti and meatballs.
The NYDailyNews reports:
The fight, according to a witness, erupted after Carlos Ortiz Jr., 42, threw out Melissa Dawn Sellers’ spaghetti and meatballs, according to Clearwater police.
“She was setting little objects on fire, then that turned into pouring nail polish remover all over him, and then all of a sudden, the lighter sparked and he lit on fire,” said Ines Causevic, a friend of the victim, Bay News 9 reported.
Sellers had been staying with Ortiz after losing her job at Wal-Mart.
Causevic said she doused her friend with water and pulled off his shirt, which was on fire.
She has been charged with battery for her latest act of arson.
