WEIRD: Woman Named Crispi Commits Arson with Bacon


A Utah woman is accused of trying to start a fire inside her ex-boyfriend’s house by burning bacon.

Coincidentally, the woman’s name is Cameo Adawn Crispi. But Crispi wasn’t able to get the bacon crispy enough to burn the house down before police showed up.

Crispi began texting and calling her ex-boyfriend from his house. The man wasn’t home and called police to say he didn’t want her in his house.

When officers arrived, there was smoke flowing out the door and a pound of burned bacon on the stove.

“I asked to come in and observed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove. I observed the burner to be on the setting ‘High’ and the bacon to be severely burned and smoking badly,” the officer wrote in a report.

Crispi was arrested and taken to the hospital before being sent to jail, where she told the doctor that she was trying to start a fire in the house to get back at her ex-boyfriend.

Crispi is facing a number of charges, including burglary, intoxication, electronic communication harassment, and, of course, arson.
