Fire and me don’t mix well. I just never got the hang of it. See, I’m kind of impatient, so, instead of taking the time to make a fire properly by doing that tee pee wood tent thing or whatever, I just throw lighter fluid on it.
BOOM. Fire started.
Child endangerment charges and a reckless endangerment charge were tossed today by a district court judge in the case against the Wilson Borough woman who allegedly doused her boyfriend in gasoline, lit a sock on fire and tossed it at him.
Grace C. O’Donnell, 36, of the 100 block of South 17th Street, appeared for a preliminary hearing before District Judge Richard Yetter III in Wilson. She had been charged with one count making terroristic threats, three counts of child endangerment, one count simple assault and two counts reckless endangerment.
The terroristic threats, simple assault and one count of reckless endangerment have been turned over to Northampton County Court, where O’Donnell is scheduled for a formal arraignment 1 p.m. Feb. 7.
Following an argument at 3 a.m. Oct. 22 about O’Donnell’s boyfriend, Terrance Mainor, calling out of work, O’Donnell allegedly tossed gasoline onto Mainor, covering his shirt and face in the flammable liquid, court records state. She then lit a sock and threw it in Mainor’s direction, according to court documents. SOURCE: The Express-Times
Thank goodness he wasn’t burnt to a crisp, but, seriously, if he was, can you imagine her being in prison for the rest of her life for burning someone to death with a flaming gym sock?
Do socks even burn well? You think she’d be better off lighting a magazine on fire or…. simply throwing the match at him.
