It began with a scandalous Facebook conversation. By the end of the night, one girl was in jail over a gooey Buick.
The victim, a high school student, told deputies she had made remarks during a Facebook chat Thursday about Kasie Leigh Strickland, 18, and a boy Strickland had dated.
A short while later came a knock at the victim's door.
When the girl opened the door, Strickland, a server at a Port Richey Hooters, asked for her name, then threatened her, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report said. The girl slammed the door and turned the lock.
That's when Strickland turned to the car in the driveway, the report said. She sloshed the gold Buick with lotion and liquid makeup, smashed chocolate cake on the windshield and poured an unknown oily liquid into the gas tank. On the driver's side door, she spelled it out in mascara: "SLUT."
The car belongs to the victim's father.
The report says that after having the gas tank disassembled and cleaned, the bill was $245.
Strickland admitted to deputies that she went to the girl's home, looking for her boyfriend, but said she didn't know anything about the damage to the car.
Strickland, of 9710 Riverchase Drive in New Port Richey was taken to the Land O'Lakes Detention Center on a charge of criminal mischief. She has since been released on $150 bail.
