JOLIETTE, QUE. — An 18-year-old woman didn't take too well to being dumped by her boyfriend Saturday, police say.

Within minutes, the broken-hearted young woman allegedly tried to torch his car, using old newspapers as kindling.

When that didn't work, she dented the car with several kicks, according to police in this city northeast of Montreal.

She continued her rampage the following day, Sgt. Gino Pare of the provincial police said.

"She went into the victim's shed to steal his scooter before abandoning it a few hundred metres away," he said.

She then called her ex and threatened him, Pare said.

When she showed up at his home Tuesday evening, he called 911.

Officers arrived and arrested the young woman, but not without a fight, police said.

They handcuffed her and put her in the back of a cruiser, where police say she smashed the car's rear windows with her feet.

Cristelle Giard appeared in court Wednesday. She's accused of uttering threats, mischief and theft.
