Police child protection officer 'spiked Lucozade with screenwash because people kept stealing it'
A Metropolitan police child protection officer has been charged after allegedly spiking a bottle of Lucozade with screenwash.
Gary Quigley, 46, is accused of putting the liquid into the bottle because he suspected a workmate was stealing his drinks.
A police officer who unknowingly drank the Lucozade collapsed and was rushed to hospital after taking the drink from a work fridge.
He has since made a full recovery.
Detective Quigley has now been charged with maliciously administering a noxious substance with 'intent to injure'.
A Met Police spokesman said: 'Gary Quigley, 45, detective constable at the Met's Child Abuse Investigation Command in Stratford, appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on January 3 on suspicion of administering a noxious substance and will appear at Southwark Crown Court on March 4.'
A bottle of screenwash is highly toxic, containing a combination of chemicals, alcohol and solvents.
