A New Jersey woman told police she got angry at her boyfriend after he made her go home following a threesome with another woman Sunday, while the other woman got to stay. 

Her response? Allegedly setting his home on fire. 

Police in Woodbury, New Jersey say Tasia Young, 33, told them she had been "going through a lot" when she showed up at police headquarters Tuesday and confessed to setting the fire.

She explained that she set the home ablaze a few days earlier because she felt “like she needed to hurt somebody,” according to her criminal complaint obtained by NJ.com. She then allegedly decided to “burn his house down,” believing that he was still in there with the other woman.
