A pair of Pennsylvanians got a little trashed one night earlier this month and attempted to beat the crap out of a Ford Fusion. When they realized their fists and feet could only do so much damage they then tried to blow up the car. With tampons. Sadly, it didn't work.


Patricia Elyse Deshong, 25, and Quentin Adam Deshong, 22, were arrested on January 7th outside the Hillside Tavern in Metal Township, Penn., after someone called the police complaining they were pummeling a 2006 Ford Fusion.

Police found numerous wires and hoses disconnected from the engine, dents on the side, smashed windows, and blood in the seats. Police also found tampons shoved in both the oil cap and the gas tank, with ashes in the area of both openings. Investigators suspect they tried to blow up the car using the tampons.


After the pair were arrested the car's owner, Falon Leigh Clark, arrived in a pickup truck being driven by Gary Scott Boggs. Because this is rural Pennsylvania, it turns out Boggs was drunk and tried to flee the scene but was captured.

When Patricia Deshong was being booked she proceeded to threaten to kill the trooper who handcuffed her to a bench. Lovely pair, them.

I don't think they were that far off. I've seen my wife explode when she's using one of those things..
