A woman was arrested on charges of arson after allegedly burning down a yoga studio in order to be happy, police in Texas said.
Dallas Police said that they arrested Nancy Duarte, also known as Suzanne Duarte, after setting fire to American Power Yoga.
According to the police investigation, Duarte arrived at American Power Yoga on Saturday, carrying a baseball bat and a can of gasoline.
Duarte said she had to burn down the place that had brought her pain and suffering. Duarte had a long-standing dispute with two men working at American Power Yoga.
One man wanted her to be his girlfriend on the side and the other man harassed her when she came to the yoga studio. On Saturday, Duarte waited until the last person left the yoga studio.
Duarte insists that she had no intention of harming anyone, but firefighters had to evacuate nearby businesses. American Power Yoga said that they were unaware of any dispute.
Duarte is being held on $16,000 bail.
