We love Laura Childs' teashop murder mysteries here at t2. While those stories are bloody good fun, it seems a cup of tea sometimes is found at real-life crime scenes. Here's a round-up of recent incidents where things boiled over ...
A British woman becomes annoyed with her companion, so she puts bleach in his tea. She was jailed on a charge of "maliciously administering a poison or noxious thing with intent to injure, aggrieve or annoy." The man is standing by her.
This man was arrested for chucking his cup of tea at his wife.
British prisoners may have poisoned the tea of two guards.
Enjoying your tea at a shop near a busy street? Maybe don't sit next to the window.
Two women stole several cases of bottled iced tea from a convenience store, then (oops) hit an elderly man with their car while trying to make their getaway.
I know you have to get all that food to the wedding, but why don't you stop for some tea first. Atta boy. ... Uh oh, someone stole your catering van!
We hear about people being scalded by to-go coffee all the time. This to-go tea sent a toddler to the burn center.
This is an oldie, but I'll link it again: A woman shot in the head makes tea for the police when they arrive.
