Florida Woman Sets Car on Fire at Gas Station, Claims She's God, Police Say
WPTV ^ | 04/26/2013

Posted on 04/27/2013 10:15:54 AM PDT by nickcarraway

A Florida woman is accused of intentionally setting her car on fire at a gas station and then sitting in the middle of a Daytona Beach highway, claiming to be God.

All that's left of 29-year-old Alexandra Barnes' Scion is charred remains.

"She came behind the counter and grabbed the yellow lighter and ran out the door," clerk Edna Sandrus said.

The clerk ran and then tussled with Barnes to get the lighter, police said. "I could smell gas on my hand from wrestling with her," Sandrus said. "At that point, she had already sprayed her car with gasoline."

"All the sudden, she grabbed the lighter out of her car, and hit the lighter and the car just went up. It was just lit up into flames, like 15 different barbecues going on, huge into the sky," witness Fred Kelley said.

She added, "I'm like, I got to go inside and cut off the emergency valve or we're all going to be dead."

Larry Romero saw the whole thing from the business next door.

And says his co-worker jumped into action when Barnes started screaming.

"She said her babies was in the car, so he ran back to the car -- it was actually dogs, grabbed the dogs out the car and then ran back to the street, got her because she was sitting in incoming traffic," Romero said. "She sat down in the middle of US92, wanting a car to hit her she said something about she was god."

Police say Barnes was taken to a hospital where she will likely be kept for a mental evaluation. The owner of the BP says the only damage to the station was a melted pump hose.

It sounds like a lot of frustrated and depressed Americans are thinking that if the piss poor POTUS can declare himself a god, they sure as hell can do it too. Just a thought.

Maybe they just thought it was a woman because the police had honored a request to remove some plumbing during a prior arrest.

Required step #1 in obtaining your monthly crazy check from SSD. A well known fact in the urban jungle, is to engage in one act each six months nuts enough to get you arrested, and the police report is absolute proof you're crazy and disabled. Barking at a cat in a tree while naked. Ordering a quarter pounder and fried bats wings from McDonalds and refusing to leave the counter until Marvin Gay does a reunion tour. Barking at patrons at an expensive restarant while plucking a dead chicken and reading the New York Times.

You get the idea. A document from the state system outweighs any doctor.

These two should hook up, it’d be divine.

Apparently they both believe God has no, or should not have -at least-, a male appendage
