Rasher revenge of bacon burner

A woman has been accused of setting fire to her ex-boyfriend's Utah home using a pound of bacon

A Utah woman will stand trial on arson charges, accused of using a pound of bacon to start a fire in her ex-boyfriend's house.

Appropriately-named Cameo Crispi, 32, repeatedly called and texted her former flame from his home in Vernal, where she left the bacon over a lit burner, police said.

The Deseret News said the man was not home and called police saying he wanted Crispi out of his house. Officers arrived and saw smoke flowing out of the front door. Inside, they found hot coals on the floor around an open wood stove and the burned bacon.

Charge documents say Crispi's blood-alcohol level was 0.346, four times the legal limit. She is due in court in October to face arson, burglary and other charges.

Her lawyer, Clint Hendricks, declined to comment.
