Eww! Student arrested after video shows her allegedly spitting, spraying Windex in roommates’ food
COLUMBIA, S. C. — A University of South Carolina student was arrested and charged with a felony after police say she was caught on video spitting and spraying glass cleaner on her roommates’ food.
Hayley King, 22, was arrested on Feb. 9 for unlawful, malicious tampering with human drug product/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 Feb. 4 shows King allegedly 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 she unknowingly ate out of a container that was diluted with spit and Windex.
King was later called to the police station and after questioning confessed to the dirty deeds, according to an incident report.
She’s since posted a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
