Pennsylvania - "At this stage we don't yet know what they used as a dipstick to check the vehicle's oil levels," a Harrisonville patrolman said today, "maybe it's best left to the imagination."
His comments come as a Metal Township couple was charged with vandalism and automobile arson after trying to set a green 2006 Ford 'Cold' Fusion saloon alight with 'flaming tampons'.
Patricia Elyse Deshong, 25 and Quentin Adam Deshong caused some $7,000 of damage to the vehicle in a Fannettsburg Road West parking lot earlier this month following a drunken bar room brawl with car owner Falon Leigh Clark of Hustontown.
Charred tampon remains and 'bits of highly flammable pantiliner' were discovered near the burnt remains of the oil fill and gas caps during a subsequent forensic probe.
Apparently the tampons were the Xtra Supasize 15-18 Gram Ultra Absorbent type favored by women with 'commodious interiors'.
The Deshongs posted $25,000 bail and will be tried later this month.
