Chicken-Fried News: Arson King



Apartment fires are the stuff of nightmares.

The slightly neurotic among us worry that our idiot neighbors are going to leave their stove on, forget to turn off their curling irons or fall asleep with candles lit and we will all end up standing in the street in the middle of the night in our pajamas, watching helplessly as our homes burn to the ground.

It appears that at least one Oklahoma City woman doesn’t worry about these things.

OKC resident Tiffany King suspected her boyfriend of 11 years was cheating on her and decided that fighting with fire was her best option, reported.

They had a brawl — complete with punching, threats of stabbing and dumping clothes on the lawn — in their apartment. reported that King also took her beau’s bag of tools outside and set them aflame.

Additionally, reported that, at some point after he left the house “while she calmed down,” she burned a bag of trash in their kitchen.

The apartment manager finally had enough and called police.

King faces charges of first-degree arson and domestic assault with a dangerous weapon.
