Police in Florida said a landlord upset about being owed rent set his tenant's boxer shorts on fire while he was still wearing them. Investigators said Jonathan Steinberg, 58, of Boynton, argued Monday with Ronald Rohde, 52, who lives in his house, about rent money Steinberg claims he is owed, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.

Police said Rohde asked Steinberg to leave his room and the landlord left and returned with rubbing alcohol and a screwdriver. Steinberg allegedly cut Rohde on the back with a screwdriver and struggled with him while a 46-year-old woman who also lives in the house attempted to break up the fight.

Steinberg then allegedly splashed Rohde with the rubbing alcohol and set the tenant's boxer shorts on fire.

Rohde was treated for minor burns at Bethesda Memorial Hospital.

Steinberg was charged with aggravated battery.

Eviction, how does it work... "whaa"
Landlord's who pull this sort of shit are retards. Threatening your tenants and pulling stunts like this is the surest way to ensure that your tenants will be living in your property rent-free for a good long while... if not owning your property outright.

I let formal letters and e-mails and eviction notices do all my talking and threatening for me. The LEAST effective way to get rid of deadbeat tenants, or get paid by them, is the 'face-to-face and belligerent' method.

Completely agree. That said, I've wanted to do this to previous tenants more times than I can count.

Oh, I have so wanted to board up the windows and doors of some of my properties and torch them with deadbeat fuck tenants inside. It would've been worth the loss of the property to hear the screams as those shitbags roasted alive.

My chick has seen some interesting things when she was a health inspector... like land lords turning off water/gas/electricity intermittently or tenants dumping clumping kitty litter down the turlets...
