Is a landlord responsible for making sure EVERY outlet works?
No, the landlord has to make sure that they provide a habitable dwelling, not a perfect one.
Also can we serve a 2nd 7-day notice to move out based on tenant getting arrested, being rude to owner, telling owner not to text him again (when he has answered the phone with "who the f-(he said the actual word) is this" and repeatedly hung up on the owner?
Probably not unless you can point to a specific clause in the lease that has been breached by these actions. Being a jerk isn't considered a lease violation.
If you have something in your lease about criminal activity on the property, if the assault happened on the property, you might be able to use that to terminate though.
