What the $h*t?!KTTC-TV—Rochester, MN
A judge has ruled that the victims of a 2002 fire in Lanesboro cannot sue the city for damages. Authorities said former Lanesboro police chief John Tuchek set the blaze in an attempt to impress his former girlfriend by rescuing her from the fire.
But the fire soon got out of control, and several Lanesboro businesses and apartments were destroyed.
Tuchek was found guilty of eight counts of first-degree arson for setting the fire and sentenced to six-years in prison.
A judge says Lanesboro cannot be sued because there wasn't enough evidence to show that the city should have foreseen Tuchek's conduct.
