Ulysses Chapman Jail Booking
Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Ulysses Chapman, a 67-year-old Florida man was jailed Saturday after he allegedly set a woman on fire inside his car and then locked the doors.
According to police, Chapman and 40-year-old Anita Ahmadi were arguing inside his car when Chapman threatened to set her on fire if she didn't "shut up."
Chapman was infuriated when Ahmadi failed to heed his warning.
In retaliation, Chapman doused the woman with a five-gallon jug of gasoline and set the woman ablaze. He then locked the doors of the vehicle as he exited, leaving the woman trapped inside to burn.
Ahmadi was rushed to Tampa General Hospital where she was treated for burns to her arms and legs.
Chapman was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail and charged with arson, aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and two counts of cocaine possession. Bond has not been set for the current charges and was revoked from an unrelated case.
