Hialeah Man Arrested for Lighting Eight Cars on Fire
Between October 11 and October 29, several cars in a Hialeah neighborhood went up in flames. Two of which just happened to belong to the same woman.
Police have now arrested Armando Hernandez, 51, the woman's boyfriend, and charged him for the car-charring spree.
Hernandez was caught last night after police observed him lighting his girlfriend's silver Jaguar on fire. Another vehicle belonging to the woman had previously been set on fire this month.
If you've got a girlfriend who drives a Jag in Hialeah that's pretty much a catch for any 51-year-old man. Why Hernandez had to go and screw it up by lighting the car on fire, we're not sure.

Police are also not sure why Hernandez lit the six other cars on fire. He's also accused of launching an incendiary device into a neighbor's yard.
Thankfully no one was injured due to Hernandez's literal flame war.
He now faces eight felony arson charges.
