It’s a classic tale of revenge…gone wrong. A North Carolina woman was trying to get revenge on her ex-boyfriend. Her plan? To set fire to his house. Only she accidentally set fire to someone else’s home. This is all according to the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. This took place in Gold Hill, NC. A neighbor witnessed the woman trying to start the fire, with oil.
According to PilotOnline a homeowner in Gold Hill was awakened Friday by a neighbor who saw a woman trying to set fire to the house. There were bundles of wood and a fire on the front porch and deputies found a jug of oil that they say was used to start the fire. The neighbor went into action and eventually confronted the woman with a rifle. She drove off just as sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene.
The woman has since been arrested and charged with first-degree arson which is a felony. She faces additional charges of assault with a deadly weapon and larceny of an animal. Damages in the incident are estimated to be around $20,000.
She didn’t get her revenge and instead is facing felony charges. Let that be a lesson for you ladies, life isn’t a country song- you won’t get away with it.
