MEMPHIS, Tenn. -

A woman was arrested after her uncle drank juice that had been laced with Mr. Clean, a household cleaning product.

Jessica Williams, 23, of Memphis, was charged with aggravated assault and adulteration of food, liquids and drugs, WREG reports.

Williams' uncle told police he grabbed the bottle of juice from the refrigerator, took a sip and noticed something tasted odd.

He said his throat became irritated, so he smelled the juice and recognized the scent of the household cleaner.

He then began vomiting, but was able to call poison control for help.

Police arrived to the scene and questioned his niece, Williams, who reportedly admitted to creating the deadly concoction with Mr. Clean.

She is being held in the Shelby County jail on $10,000 bond.
