A homeless woman in Florida is reported to have set her boyfriend on fire because she was “mad at him for not providing her with drugs,” according to the criminal complaint.
41-year-old Annie Harper, at around 4 p.m. Saturday, purportedly doused her 34-year-old boyfriend’s shorts with a flammable liquid at a homeless camp, before fleeing the scene on a bike.
Officers responded to the homeless camp after multiple witnesses called 911 saying they could hear screaming coming from the woods. They also reportedly saw a naked man arguing with Ms. Harper on the road. One witness said she then kicked him while he was on the ground.
When deputies and paramedics arrived, the unidentified victim told them that sheâ€™d set him on fire and that theyâ€™d been living together in the woods.
Those deputies found Ms. Harper at a nearby convenience store. She told them that heâ€™d set himself on fire.
She was then taken into custody on an aggravated battery charge.
The victim was taken to a hospital for his burn injuries.
