On the floor, there were burn patterns consistent with a "poured, ignitable liquid." Duke was arrested for arson.

Later in the conversation, a manager agreed to send someone with her pizza to her apartment. Two hours later, the pizza still hadn't shown up. So the woman called the corporate office to complain. The deliveryman finally arrived with the pizza and expected a tip. The woman said, "Your manager told me I didn't have to tip." The deliveryman got upset, kicked the door, and said, "This is why I don't like to deal with faggots." The woman filed another complaint with the corporate office.
