Police found her naked and sucking on a propane tank in her garage.
They arrived at the Naples woman’s house after her mother, Janice, called for help. Naples police saw Sarah Jo Longacre in the garage with the lights off and doors closed, according to WZVN.
The 45-year-old woman had been huffing propane from the tank, police said. She lit a lighter near the nozzle of the tank and told cops to get out. They brought her mother off the property to safety, then went back for Longacre.
Police said she lit the lighter again, but they kicked the empty tank away.

With the situation secure, police called paramedics. While they were on their way, the five-foot, 300-pound woman announced she’d drank two liters of alcohol. A traditional handle of liquor holds 1.75 liters. Police said she also called 911 six times.
Getting Longacre to the hospital took several emergency workers. She kicked and bit, police said, but it didn’t hurt because she has no teeth.
Longacre was hospitalized, and arrested and charged with threatening to discharge a destructive device, resisting an officer with violence and misusing 911.
She was booked on Thursday into Collier County jail and is held on a $17,000 bond.
