INDIANAPOLIS, July 5 (UPI) -- An Indianapolis woman was held without bond Wednesday after she allegedly doused a cross-dressing man with gasoline and threatened to set him on fire.

Jacqueline Dejournett, 42, faced initial charges of battery and criminal recklessness, the Indianapolis Star reported.


Dejournett was arguing with Cece Miller, 38, at a gas station Tuesday night, police said. She filled a plastic jug with gasoline and doused Miller with the fuel while threatening to light him on fire. Miller was dressed in women's clothes, police said.

Dejournett also went inside the gas station's payment office and poured gasoline onto a rug and a candy display, police said.

A station clerk locked Dejournett in the office until police arrived.
