What kind of argument with your boy would lead to you going straight for a gas can? Did he impregnate every female in your immediate family and lay all four sonograms on your lap at the same time? Damn, son. Let’s table the arson and potential mass homicide and let your jets cool a bit.
David Lawrence, 20, got into a verbal and physical altercation with his roommate at the University of Kentucky’s Alpha Gamma Rho house. Members of the fraternity broke up the fight, but it didn’t end there. Back in his dorm room, Lawrence decided he wanted to burn the whole fucker down. Basically, he soaked the entire room, along with his roommate’s belongings, in gasoline.
Thankfully, the gas was never ignited, which saved Lawrence from the aforementioned arson and potential homicide charges.
According to the arrest citation Lawrence, who is a BCTC student, poured gasoline on his roommate’s clothes, bed, couch and other property inside their dorm room.
Police say the incident occurred after they had already separated the two roommates after they had a verbal and physical altercation.
A potential grave situation was avoided, and although the article makes no mention of it, I’d like to think Lawrence came to his senses before setting the dormitory ablaze.
Then again, maybe he just couldn’t find–or operate–a lighter…
Lawrence told police when he was arrested that he had been drinking.
