Landlord Ignites Tenants Boxers for Late Rent

(Boynton, Florida)

It’s every landlord’s dream: setting your tenant on fire for being late on the rent payment.

Jonathan Steinberg, a Boynton landlord was fed-up with his tenant Ronald Rhode, who was late with the rent, so after leaving the tenant’s apartment following a brief argument, he promptly returned with rubbing alcohol, received a screwdriver laceration on his back, dumped the rubbing alcohol on the tenants underwear and set them afire with a book of matches.

Steinberg was arrested on aggravated assault, and the boxers were taken in as evidence.
