One dead, eight hospitalised after spiked drinks in Bavaria

BERLIN (AP) – One man died and eight others were hospitalised in serious condition after drinking spiked drinks in Bavaria, German police said yesterday.

The man who died was 52 years old, and the others were between 33 and 52, police told German news agency dpa.

Police didn’t say what the group of people had been drinking because of the ongoing investigation, but said they had ordered and shared one bottle. The incident happened on Saturday night in the Bavarian town of Weiden.

When police arrived, they found people lying on the ground with cramps and eight of them had to be hospitalised.

A police spokeswoman told public broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk that there was a suspicion of negligent homicide but that they weren’t looking at any suspects for the time being.
