Okay, I will admit that I’m a moderate fan of Yoga. It’s not something I do everyday, but it’s something I do.
It has not led me to the devil. As of yet.
Suzanne Duarte was not so lucky.
She took it upon herself to burn down the American Power Yoga Studio in Dallas. She used a baseball bat and a can of gasoline. Yeah, I don’t get the baseball bat either. Maybe she was going to use it as a torch. I dunno.
Suzanne (who also goes by Nancy) says she is smiling in her mug shot because she was happy to get even. She did not like one of the men who owns the studio.
“He kept hitting on me and kept trying to make me the girlfriend on the side,” Duarte claimed about one of the men.
On Saturday, Duarte says she waited until it was late so no one would be at the studio.
“Just to set it on fire, just destroy it, get rid of the devil’s temple,” Duarte said.
She was unsuccessful and none of the other businesses in the strip shopping center were damaged. Thank God. Or the Devil. Seriously, I have no idea who to thank.
Here’s the fun part. The Yoga studio has been under new management since November and they had no idea about the dispute between Duarte and the previous owner.
Nonetheless, Duarte says the only regret she has is that the studio didn’t burn.
Anyway, she’s in jail. Smiling. And hoping.
Duarte is being held on a $16,000 bond. She says if she gets out, she will not try to burn down the studio again.
I don’t believe her.
