Romania's sex-crazed Angelina Jolie lookalike has been arrested again - after flipping out in a hotel lobby because none of the taxi drivers wanted to give her a ride.
Stunning Luminita Perijoc, 32, had been given a suspended 4 year jail term after she dragged a taxi driver Nicolae Stan, 35, into her house and forced him to have sex with her at knifepoint. She had also demanded oral sex, and when he failed to perform a third time, she had flown into a temper and reportedly tried to kill him.
The court at the trial heard that the terrified cabbie had locked himself in the bathroom and used his mobile telephone to call police to rescue him during the incident in 2012.
Because of her resemblance to Angelina Jolie, the story made international headlines, but it also made her a household name in Romania. So when the first taxi driver arrived at a four star hotel in Tulcea, a town near the seaside Black Sea resort area, when he spotted her, he put his foot down and sped off.
The hotel, which apologised, called a second taxi, but when he turned up and saw the woman he was expected to carry, he again drove off saying his wife would divorce him. The hotel then got a call from the taxi cab company saying that they had no taxi drivers free.
The news however failed to impress Luminita who was supposed to travel to meet her mother in the nearby village of Cataloi.
A staff member that declined to be named said she had shouted: "These guys are all idiots, do they think I am going to jump on every taxi driver I meet? The first guy was at least 60-years-old and the second one must have weighed 150 kilos."
Fearing that the enraged woman was about to attack them, the hotel staff had called police, who said she now faces a charge of disturbing the peace.
During her first trial the court heard that Perijoc did suffer from a bad temper and struggled sometimes to control her anger, which even her family admitted was sometimes a problem. The court had initially jailed her, but converted it to a suspended sentence on appeal after hearing that she had taken medication that had meant that she lost control on the night of the attack.
Friends told local media that Perijoc is a huge fan of actress Jolie and models herself on the Tomb Raider star, and after the court case had even taken up professional boxing in a bit to get rid of some of her excess energy.
