A Florida woman was arrested and charged with second-degree arson last week in a failed revenge attempt against her boyfriend.

Carmen Chamblee, 19, allegedly torched a vehicle she thought belonged to her ex-boyfriend. It did not.

The Clearwater Police Department posted the arson on its Facebook page. The car’s owner, Thomas Jennings, previously told WFTS-TV he’s never met the woman in his life.

“I have no idea who she is,” Jennings said when the story first broke last week.


Jennings’ roommate reportedly first spotted the blaze and let him know his car was on fire. They went outside and attempted to put out the fire but were unable to do so.
