A Texas woman explained her unusual mug shot after she was arrested and charged with setting fire to a yoga studio.

“Most people can’t understand the smiling mug shot,” Nancy Duarte told KTVT-TV from jail.

The 41-year-old Duarte, who goes by Suzanne, said she smiled in the photo to help let go of the anger that drove her to American Power Yoga with a baseball bat and can of gasoline, reported the TV station.

She said the studio had brought her “so much pain and suffering” during an ongoing dispute with two men associated with the Dallas business.

Duarte said the men sexually harassed her for years despite her rejections of both of them.

She told the TV station she waited until late Saturday, when no one would be at the studio, “just to set it on fire, just destroy it — get rid of the devil’s temple.”

Duarte, who smiled for photographs taken by the TV station while she was jailed, said she wished the yoga studio had sustained more damage.

No injuries were reported in the fire, but several neighboring businesses were evacuated.

Duarte remains held on $16,000 bond, but she promises not to set fire to the studio again if she is released.
