Woman seeking revenge accidentally set herself on fire

An Etowah County woman is free on bond after Sheriff's Deputies say she accidentally set herself on fire trying to get revenge on a repo woman.

It happened on May 2nd on Carlisle Cut-Off Road in the Mountainboro community.

According to Sheriff Todd Entrekin, 26 year old Haleigh Boland of Boaz was arrested on May 18th and charged with 1st degree criminal mischief. The Sheriff says Boland's car was repossessed earlier this month, and she tracked down the repo woman with the intent of setting her car on fire. Little did she know that the repo woman had a surveillance camera set up on the property.

However, as you can see in the video attached, Boland poured gasoline on the vehicle, but had a hard time getting the fire started. When it finally did ignite, Boland ended up lighting her clothes on fire in the process. She can be seen tossing clothes off as she runs to a waiting get-away car. She suffered first and second degree burns to her upper body. Sheriff Entrekin says Boland's father - 50 year old Benny Boland was driving that vehicle. He's also been charged in connection with the incident.

Haleigh Boland reportedly confessed to being the person seen in the video, and both her and her father have been released on bond.
