Stripper at Center of Duke Lacrosse Case, Crystal Mangum, Arrested for Attempted Murder

It’s been a wild couple of years for Crystal Mangum: first she claimed to have been raped by a bunch of lacrosse players at Duke University. Then she had to recant that story and say she lied about the whole thing and ruined the lives of several of the young men. Now, apparently, she’s having relationship trouble and–allegedly– tried to use arson to solve the problem. We normally suggest counseling.  At right, Crystal Mangum’s mug shot picture.
The stripper who falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of rape nearly four years ago has been charged with attempted murder after a fight with her boyfriend.  Crystal Mangum, 31, was arrested on Wednesday on charges including arson and assault, according to police in Durham, North Carolina.  She was also charged with identity theft, communicating threats, damage to property, resisting an officer and misdemeanor child abuse. A judge ordered that she remain in jail on a $1 million bond. Mangum had no lawyer listed Thursday.

Authorities released audio of a 911 call in which a girl who said she was Mangum’s 9-year-old daughter called for help. The police said they found Mangum and her boyfriend, Milton Walker, fighting when they arrived at the home just before midnight. Mangum then went into a bathroom and set some clothes on fire in a bathtub, the police said. The single-story duplex had heavy smoke damage, but no one was hurt, a Durham fire department news release said.
