Crystal Gale Mangum, the stripper who accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping her, has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
WRAL in Raleigh, N.C. reports that "Police charged her with attempted first-degree murder, five counts of arson, assault and battery, communicating threats, three counts of misdemeanor child abuse, injury to personal property, identity theft and resisting a public officer." As well, the station reported:Shortly after 11:30 p.m., police received a 911 call about a domestic dispute at 2220 Lincoln St. Authorities said they believe the call came from one of the three children inside the house.Three small children were the house.
When officers arrived, they found Mangum and her boyfriend, Milton Walker, 33, fighting. According to police documents, Mangum scratched, punched and threw objects at Walker and told him, "I'm going to stab you, (expletive)!"
She then went into a bathroom and set his clothes on fire in the bathtub, police said. Officers called the fire department to put out the flames. No one was injured.
The New York Times and Washington Post haven't posted the news just yet. But we're sure they will, given their coverage of Mangum's phony rape charges.
