Tampa woman accused of lighting husband's arm on fire with nail polish remover

TAMPA — A 40-year-old woman was arrested Saturday night, accused of lighting her husband's arm on fire with nail polish remover, police said.

Idalmis De Armas was at her Tampa home in the 7300 block of Encanto Court when she poured nail polish remover on his upper arm and shorts about 11 p.m. before igniting it with a lighter, an arrest report shows.

The victim sustained severe burns to his arm, but declined medical treatment, as well as admitting to deputies that De Armas was responsible for his injuries. They live together with their two children.

De Armas confessed to the crime, according to the report, and clenched her fists and pulled away as deputies tried to handcuff her.

De Armas was arrested and faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer without violence. She was being held Monday at the Hillsborough County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail.
