A Jaguar XE similar to the one Cintron is accused of setting on fire

The Miami-Dade Police Department has arrested Melvin Alain Cintron, a 37-year-old Hollywood, Florida, man, for intentionally setting a car on fire last April, Local 10 News reports. The car in question, a Jaguar XE, reportedly belonged to his now ex-girlfriend. Oh, also, the ex-girlfriend is apparently his cousin. So that’s probably going to make any future family reunions at least a little awkward. Then again, it is Florida, so it’s also entirely possible they won’t be the only ex-cousin-lovers at those reunions.

Cameras reportedly caught Cintron setting the car on fire in front of a house near North Miami on April 29. Police reportedly learned the car belonged to his girlfriend/cousin but were only recently able to interview her for her side of the story. It sounds like she had good reason to keep quiet and get out of the relationship beyond the family connection.
