A Florida woman allegedly spiked a man's drinks with Raid roach spray after the pair met at a local bar.
Veronica Cline, 29, is charged with poisoning food or drink, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Friday.
Deputies were called to a home in Deleon Springs around 4:30 a.m. where they met the man, who had become ill. He said he came home with Cline after she asked him to continue drinking with her.
He said he had two drinks and began feeling sick. Cline allegedly admitted to him to spiking the two drinks with the roach spray.
"The victim told deputies he was vomiting for about 30 minutes before he was able to call for help," the sheriff's office said. "He became sick again while providing his statement to a deputy."
First, to answer the question in the headline, I'm gonna say yeah. If you had a lineup where you had the pick the person who poisoned a partner with roach spray, this would be the person. She looks like she has plenty of roach spray just layin around.
But that went without saying.
What could have also gone without saying is admitting that you roached someone's drink. Cant do that. If you hate someone enough to roach em up, you gotta stick with it. You cant get roach cold feet. I mean, I guess you go from murder charges to potentially attempted murder. That'll get you a few less years and possibly not the death penalty in ole florida. Either way, cant be roaching people up.
Side note: I always kinda thought that grape soda tasted a little bit like roach spray in the finish. Like you drink it and are like, "yum. That pairs well with peanut butter and jelly" but then it has a bit of a roach spray afterbirth. I don't know what it is but it's a fact. Grape soda tastes like a grape-flavored diet roach spray and I've thought so for years. In fact, I reached out to my primary care doctor and asked her if she knew why they tasted so similar. Here's what she said. I found it incredibly interesting.
"If you're perceiving a similarity in taste between grape soda and roach spray, it's important to note that this is not a normal or expected experience. Ingesting roach spray can be extremely dangerous and harmful to your health. If you accidentally ingested roach spray or are experiencing unusual tastes, sensations, or symptoms, it's crucial to seek medical attention immediately.
Perceptions of taste can be influenced by many factors, including individual sensitivities, sensory confusion, or even an underlying medical condition. However, it's important to emphasize that grape soda and roach spray are not meant to taste similar, and any perceived similarity should be treated as a serious health concern. If this continues, contact me so we can get you scheduled for both physical and mental testing."
Hmmm. That's not how I remembered that conversation going. Oh well. Sorry to that man who was poisoned with not grape soda.
