We suppose Carmen Chamblee should get a certain degree of leeway for being 19 years old, but fuck that. If you’re old enough to serve in the military, you should know better than to torch someone’s car, even if they are your ex.
Only in Carmen’s case, the car belonging to her ex wasn’t her ex’s at all, but a total stranger by the name of Thomas Jennings. When some co-workers alerted the poor bastard that his car was on fire, he ran out with a pot of water to try and put it out, but it was a pot of water, so that didn’t really work out too well.
Chamblee was made aware by authorities that she got the wrong car and was charged with second degree arson. Unfortunately — though fortunately for her — there is no specific charge that covers being an ignorant dumbass. If there was, it wouldn’t take a jury of 12 to convict, that’s for damn sure.
