A Florida man’s uncle is facing a felony after buying him a sandwich and allegedly poisoning it by dousing it in Visine eye drops to make him sick.
On the evening of December 13, a man went to a convenience store in Pinellas Park that he visits regularly. When he was talking to the clerk, he reportedly told them he was suffering from dry eyes. He asked to purchase a bottle of Visine. The man started to discuss the tense relationship he has with his nephew, with whom he resides and allegedly expressed hatred towards him.
The man reportedly opened a container holding a meatball sandwich and started pouring the Visine all over the food. The clerk, who reportedly saw the man dousing the sandwich with the eye drops, said he tried to tell him it could cause someone harm if they ingested the food.
