CLEARWATER, FL (KTRK) --They say, "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," and police say one woman wanted her ex-boyfriend to feel the burn of her anger. Police say she tried to set his car on fire, but ended up targeting the wrong car.
The Clearwater Florida Police Department posted surveillance video on their Facebook page of a woman intentionally setting the car on fire last month. They asked for the public's help to identify the woman.
Police posted an update on their Facebook page identifying the suspected arsonist as 19-year-old Carmen Chamblee. Police say a Pinellas County Sheriff's Office deputy spotted Chamblee over the weekend and arrested her.
She is charged with second-degree arson. Police say surveillance video shows Chamblee setting a Honda Accord on fire on August 27.
According to WFTS-TV, Chamblee allegedly told investigators she thought the car she set on fire belonged to her ex-boyfriend. However, that was not the case.
