A unsuspecting Citroën C3 emerged as the burnt-out victim of mistaken car identity.
The incendiary error occurred when the 62-year old went to the car park used by his ex-wife with a plan to take out his anger on her car. Finding a car in her usual spot, he set fire to it, causing it to be completely destroyed.
Unfortunately for him, the car was not his ex-wife's but that of a neighbour who had asked to borrow her space for the night.
Apparently not able to make a quick getaway, the man was caught red-handed by his former wife. He is now the subject of an official complaint from the wronged neighbour. The case will go to court in September.
