Cameo Adawn Crispi, sporting a 0.346 blood alcohol content, was seeking revenge on her ex: "Crispi's ex-boyfriend called Naples police March 14 to report that he'd received 'multiple phone calls and texts" from her in an hour and wanted it to stop, according to charging documents. He also said he did not want her at his home. An officer went to the home. He said Crispi was obviously impaired and there was smoke coming out the front door. 'I asked to come in and observed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove," the officer wrote, noting that he also found a cookie sheet loaded with a pound of bacon sitting on top of the kitchen stove. 'I observed the burner to be on the setting "High" and the bacon to be severely burned and smoking badly,' the officer wrote."
