Sioux Falls police say they arrested a man who lit toilet paper on fire inside a casino and then punched a man over the weekend.

Dustin Wade Buffalo, was charged with reckless burning and disorderly conduct.

An officer responded at about 4 p.m. Sunday to Deuces Casino in the 800 block of East Eighth Street near the intersection of North Franklin Avenue after a witness flagged them down to tell them there was a fire in the casino's bathroom, police spokesman Sam Clemens said.

When the officer arrived, he saw two men outside, one man punching another, Clemens said.

"The one punching the other one, that ended up being our suspect," Clemens said. "We don't really know why this happened, but he walked into the bathroom inside the casino, used a lighter and lit some toilet paper and paper towels on fire."

Then as he walked out, he just started punching the other man, Clemens said. The victim did not have any serious injuries.
