Damn, Jeffrey Blanc, let it go dude. Your girl's moved on. She ain't coming back, and there's no sense in lighting her new dude's car on fire. All that did was land you in jail.

According to NBC Miami, Blanc, 32, dated Kristal Brantly for about two years until they broke up in 2012. Brantly told police that Blanc had become controlling and started following her around.

She claims that after the breakup, Blanc continuously sent her text messages and voicemails asking to rekindle the relationship. She ignored all of them. She had herself a new man in Antoine Dolce.

Blanc however would not let it go, and on June 23rd went to Dolce's house and set his car on fire. The fire also spread to his home.

Blanc was caught on camera, and Brantly identified him in the video. Blanc was arrested and admitted to the crime.

Though, he also admitted to having spray painted Dolce's house and car three separate times, and having set Dolce's car on fire a previous time.
