A 29-year-old woman claiming to be God was arrested after torching her car at a Florida gas station.
The incident happened Wednesday night in Daytona Beach: Alexandra Barnes pumped gas into her vehicle and allegedly sprayed more gas all over the car. She then entered the store, grabbed a cigarette lighter and repeatedly muttered, "I've got to get out here," the Daytona News-Journal reported.
Gas station worker Craig Walker fought with Barnes to get the lighter, and noticed gas on her hands, but she grabbed another lighter and fled the store to torch her Scion.
"It was just lit up into flames, like 15 different barbecues going on, huge into the sky," witness Fred Kelley told WPDO.com.
Another employee shut off the emergency valve to prevent the whole station from blowing up, while a bystander ran to the car to save Barnes' dogs that were inside.
Barnes then sat down in the middle of the road wanting a car to hit her, according to Daytona Beach police officer Jimmy Flynt, "She said something about she was 'God,'" Flynt told WFTV-TV.
Barnes was taken to a hospital for mental evaluation.
The gas station only suffered a melted pump hose from the incident.
