COLUMBIA, SC (May 2, 2015) – A University of South Carolina student was arrested after spitting in and spraying glass cleaner on her roommates’ food. And she was caught via hidden cameras.
The Columbia Police Department arrested Hayley King, 22, on February 9 for unlawful, malicious tampering with human drug product or food, which is a Class C felony carrying a term of up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
WIS-TV reports that King and her two roommates had “multiple altercations” in the weeks prior to the incident. The women said they wanted King to move out, but she refused to leave.
The roommates were afraid King would do something in retaliation, so they set up hidden cameras inside the home. Video recorded on the morning of February 4 shows King spitting in multiple containers of food that was stored in a refrigerator in the house. She can also be seen spraying Windex on food.
One of the roommates told police that she ate the food that had Windex and spit in it.
King confessed to the incident. She was released a day after her arrest on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
Her next court appearance is scheduled for May 4.
