I’ve heard of competition, but this is absolutely ridiculous!
Two managers of a Domino’s Pizza restaurant in Lake City, Sean Everett Davidson, 23, and Bryan David Sullivan, 22, are accused of torching a Papa John’s Pizza location, reports the Ocala Star-Banner.
By the time the blaze had been brought under control, the business had been gutted, according to Lake City Police Department spokesman Capt. John Blanchard. Police investigator Paul Kash immediately began working with the State Fire Marshal’s Office, and the fire was ruled an arson a short time later, police said.
As leads about the fire began filtering into the police department, investigators Kevin Johns and Patrick Ross began working with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on the case.
Police said Sullivan’s motive was that the Domino’s location he was managing would see an increase in business if the Papa John’s restaurant was put out of business.
