A BLOODY AWFUL CRIME

A Pennsylvania couple will have to absorb some serious punishment after they were busted trying to blow up an automobile with a batch of flaming tampons.

Patricia and Quentin Deshong were taken into custody when a witness spotted them tampering with a Ford Focus in a cocktail lounge parking lot. They'd busted the vehicle's windshield and yanked out some hoses before trying to insert the feminine hygiene products into the gas tank.

Both are being charged with attempted arson, felony criminal mischief and public drunkenness. Ms. Deshong has an additional count of terrorist threats, since she vowed to kill a state trooper once released.
