Texas Woman Angered at Tax Office Grunts Accused of Trying to Burn the Place Down

OK seriously, people, what is in the freaking water? Thank goodness the end is close, poor tax office grunts must be extra terrified this year what with the stabbings and shootings and nonsense.

From Click2Houston:

A woman is in jail, charged with arson after investigators say she became upset with employees of a tax office and tried to torch the building.

Houston fire investigators say on March 5, Tametra Kashay Lathan and another woman got into an argument and the woman "pushed the defendant in the forehead and set her off," court records indicate.

Police say later that day witnesses saw Lathan with a can of bug spray and saw her dump the liquid on the door of the business off Lyons near downtown Houston, then saw flames.

It is unclear what set the woman off or why she brought bug spray into a tax office.
