Ex-beau is accused of setting woman on fire, she’s hit with tow charges for her car AND his
Talk about adding insult to injury.
A Florida woman who was set on fire in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven earlier this week was charged hundreds of dollars to cover the cost to police for towing her car from the scene, WPBF News reported.
Naomie Breton, 34, is recovering from her injuries after the father of her son, Roosevelt Mondesir, allegedly doused her with gasoline and set her ablaze Monday night.
She came away from the horrific attack with second- and third-degree burns. Mondesir, 52, is being held without bond on an attempted first-degree murder charge.
Now Zuccala’s Towing is telling Breton that she has to pay $340 in fees for her own car, as well as $363 and a $25 late fee for the car of her alleged attacker — because Mondesir’s car is still registered under her name.
“I think it’s a disgrace,” Breton told the television station Thursday. “It’s not like I had a choice of where my car went to. I was on fire.”
Police towed the car as the mother of three was rushed being rushed to the hospital Monday, according to WPTV.
The owner of the towing company told WPTV that Breton is responsible for the costs under Florida law, but that they’ll try to negotiate a solution with her on the cost of the second car.
