Woman gets prison for pumping gas on victim during argument

TUNKHANNOCK, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman who doused another woman in gasoline during an argument about her smoking while she fueled up is headed to prison.

Police say Meshoppen resident Kimberly Brinton was pumping gas with a lit cigarette at Mehoopany Dandy Mart when Tami Donovan told her to put it out. The women argued before Donovan threw water at Brinton’s cigarette.

Police say as Donovan tried to pull away in her car Brinton threatened to light her on fire and pumped gas on her. Donovan then got out of her car and slipped and broke her arm.
