A list of Kool-Aid crimes, including gun fights, poisonings, child abuse cases, and good old-fashioned beat downs. Like Jessica Fletcher, Kool-Aid just seems to stumble on trouble wherever it goes. Coincidence? Could you possible think that Kool-Aid could be the cause or be a reason why people commit crazy crimes? Seems nuts right? Well it is and it's certainly not a normal thing.What are some Kool-Aid related crimes? If you want to know this list will help answer that question. These 10 examples are just the tip of the iceberg so this should give you an idea how crazy people can be.
Lunatic Teen Spikes Mom's Kool-Aid with Lysol
In July 2010, a mother-daughter fight in New Hampshire escalated quickly. I mean, things really got out of hand fast. After her arrest, 17 year-old Brittany Merrill claimed that during an argument, her mother threw a TV remote at her and punched her in the face (though there was no sign of damage on her anywhere). Two days later, she got revenge by, y'know, putting Lysol in her mom's Kool-Aid. Like ya do.
Her mother drank the Kool-Aid, so to speak (like literally drank it, because Kool-Aid is delicious), and soon felt burning in her throat. She later got a restraining order against Brittany, which I think was fair, especially since there were 3 other small children in the house that could have sipped some of that Kool-Aid. Brittany violated the order by having a friend tell her mother that "she hates her." Oh, to be 17 again.Source, Follow-Up
Innovative Genius Sells Kool-Aid as Fuel
Ronald Horlings was arrested in Houston in April 1983 after he convinced people to invest in a new
"super automobile fuel" made of water, ammonia, and orange Kool-Aid. Say wha? He convinced two women in Lansing, MI, to support the development and marketing of "etholeen," which was supposed to get 90 miles per gallon. I mean, in their dreams, right? Horlings also got in trouble for a bunch of other things in the early 80s - from passing bad checks to claiming to have developed a way to operate an engine on compressed air - but he was smart about the etholeen. See, the ammonia was just there to make it smell.
Kool-Aid Rage Causes Son to Punch Mom in Face
In Louisville, KY, a grown man went apesh*t on his own mother when she told him to get his own damn Kool-Aid in Nov. 2011. When 35 year-old Lequan Washington asked for a glass of the tasty drink bev but was told to get it himself, he punched his mom in the face, knocked her down, stomped on her, and broke a window. Holy overreaction, Thunderbolt. Upon his arrest, Washington claimed that his mother pointed a gun at him and fired, but police found no evidence of this. Just the Kool-Aid thing.Source
Man Steals 88 Packets of Kool-Aid
A Chicago man was arrested for retail theft in Feb. 2012 after stealing $198 worth of merch from a grocery store. The haul included four packages of condoms, eight packages of beef, and 88 packets of Kool-Aid. It's too bad, really. That party sounds like it would have been off the hook.Source
