Now there are inventive criminals and Shemroy Williams is not an exception by any stretch because this guy tried to burn his ex partner’s house down using cheetos… WTF!
On the morning of the incident, the victim was having breakfast with a friend when Williams began causing a ruckus, banging on her house and shouting her name. It turned out he was lighting her house on fire, with five different ignition points that were later found by authorities. The victim and her friend ran to a nearby restaurant and asked that they call 911. A police officer happened to be having breakfast there, and called his dispatcher, reports add. When firefighters arrived, they had to first extinguish a small fire burning under the porch. Then, they found a propane tank from a cooking grill, wedged under the back porch, and they were able to remove it before it exploded.
Police didn’t have to look far for Williams; he was reportedly standing in plain view 100 yards away. When police searched the defendant he had two lighters and an empty bag of Cheetos on him. He was charged on the scene with arson of a dwelling and malicious destruction of property.
Police suspect he tried to use individual Cheetos as an accelerant, perhaps being unable to find any paper. In fact, according to Lifehacker, chips like Doritos and Cheetos can actually be used to ignite a blaze. In fact, one commenter says that Cheetos, described as “fire-friendly,” work “even better” than the others. Another user explains, “If you think about it, its basically pure hydrocarbons (which burn) soaked in fat (which burns).”
Well i have to say that was a waste of good cheetos to be honest, but that cheetos character has always been bad news i mean take a look at the gif below.
