Ford Fusion No Match for Flaming Tampons

Print comment Post Comments

You may think you have eventful Saturday nights out on the town but you don't hold a candle -- or in this case, a flaming tampon -- to a young married couple in rural Pennsylvania.

With hijinks on their minds and alcohol in their blood, Metal Township’s Patricia Deshong, 25, and Quentin Deshong, 22, were arrested on a charges of criminal mischief, public drunkenness, and attempted arson when they vandalized and tried to set ablaze a 2006 Ford (F) Fusion -- with lit tampons.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the Deshongs caused severe damage to the vehicle including denting the exterior, cracking the front windshield and the driver’s side door, and busting out its rear window. The engine hood was left in the upright position with various hoses disconnected and a tampon was in the engine compartment where the oil fill cap is located. With ashes found in that spot, along with some beneath the gas tank (where the cap was removed), police concluded that the couple ignited tampons in an attempt to set the car on fire.

Apparently, as improvised incendiary weapons, tampons don’t hold the same spark as, say, an oily rag. But arsonists can’t be choosers.

The car belongs to 25-year-old Falon Clark, who counted Patricia Deshong as a Facebook friend. However, hours after her Fusion was trashed, she posted a status update that she was “lookin for some revenge…”

Additional charges slapped on Patricia were theft, once police found she was in possession of the Ford’s license plate and registration card and also “terrorist threats” since she told a trooper at the police station that she was “going to f***ing kill” him following her release.

After serving a few days in jail, both Deshongs were released on $25,000 bond. The status of the trooper is unknown.
