Lingerie is supposed to create sparks in the bedroom, but Jennifer Renee Colwell allegedly went straight to the source.
A judge issued an arrest warrant for the 42-year-old woman who failed to show up in Orange County Superior Court Tuesday on arson charges tied to her allegedly putting an ex-boyfriend's gifts bought at Intimate Obsessions into a pillowcase, dousing it in gas, torching it and hurling it into the Dana Point shop.
Beats me why Colwell would pick on the business at 34183 Pacific Coast Highway, but that was the site of a blaze around 12:30 a.m. last Oct. 2 that an Orange County sheriff's deputy claims to have witnessed.
Colwell, who sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino described as having been “distraught” that early morning–gee, you think?–now faces felony arson of property.
Top that crazy-ex tale, eHarmonizers!
