Well, the lease spells out a lot of things I've never seen spelled out in a lease before. But it has been about fifteen years since I've leased an apartment. Times have changed.

There is a long list of behaviors for which tenants can be fined. Conflict with tenants leading to police involvement is on the list.

So, yes he can be fined. At least that's what the lease says, and I'm not going to have an attorney look at it.

As far as the insult exchange, Champaign Il has a hate crime law. I'm not very familiar with it. I don't know if slurs are covered by it. I guess since the police showed up, they must be covered somehow.
