Woman burns down man's house after he booty called her and fell asleep

Headlines 20/08/2019

Booty calls don't always end well, and with the widespread use of dating apps and social media, they're easier to use and more accessible than ever. 

But one New Jersey man has had the booty call from hell, which is a perfect example of the age-old saying "you snooze you lose."

The man in question was prepping for a woman, Taija Russell, 29 (pictured up top), to come over to his place for a bit of 'Netflix and Chill.' However, he took the 'chill' aspect way too seriously and ended up falling asleep while Russell was on her way.

Safe to say, she wasn't stoked with coming all that way for nothing, but there's being upset and then there's being a damn psycho.

According to USA Today, she sent a barrage of messages to his phone and even tried banging on his door to wake him up. When that didn't work, she gave up, blocked him, left his property and got on with her life.

Just kidding, she went ape sh*t.

She allegedly purchased lighter fluid at a nearby petrol station at around 4am, came back to the property, and lit the front door on fire, which was the only way in or out of the house.

The sleepy Cassanova woke up 30 mins later to find his house on fire, chucking himself out the window when he realised the front door was not an option. He was treated for second-degree burns and smoke inhalation, according to the Metro.

The victim was also able to get his dog out of the property without it sustaining serious injury.

While the man and his dog escaped, firefighters weren't able to save what was inside his home with authorities saying the blaze destroyed the property and its contents.

Police got hold of the messages Taija reportedly sent to the victim, which included 'I see you wanna die' and 'You wasted my money to come out here'.

Legal documents state the victim considers Russell as a 'side chick whom he had been having a sexual relationship with'. Guess that relationship is most definitely over now.

Russell is now being held on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated arson, aggravated assault, endangering or creating substantial risk of death and criminal mischief.

Again, you snooze, you lose.
