A warrant has been issued for a 30-year-old Tacoma woman charged with setting her boyfriend’s car on fire in an alcohol-infused rage.
Pierce County prosecutors say Falon Miller lit a fire in the backseat of the car Nov. 3 after her boyfriend told her he didn’t want her drinking the bottle of vodka she’d just bought in his house.
Miller has been charged with second-degree arson.
She allegedly threatened to start the fire but her boyfriend thought she was joking. Later that evening, he looked out the window and noticed flames coming from his car. After spotting a gasoline can in the backseat with a flaming towel stuffed inside, he tossed the gasoline can in the garbage, which also ignited.
Firefighters were called to extinguish the blaze.
Police said they obtained surveillance footage from a nearby grocery store and were able to identify Miller purchasing the can and gasoline.
