    A man has been jailed on assault charges after a prosecutor, police officer and courtroom bailiff became seriously ill after shaking hands with him.

    During a Dec. 21 court appearance on a traffic charge, John Ridgeway pulled out a vial of an unknown liquid, rubbed his hands with the contents and insisted on shaking hands with the three people, authorities said.

    All of them got sick within an hour, suffering from nausea, headaches, numbness and tingling that lasted about a day. Two sought treatment at a hospital.

    LOL, my question was why would they arrest him, before they had the tests back? How do they know that is the source of the illness?

    My question is why would you shake hands with someone who just rubbed something strange on his hands in the first place? Obviously someone saw him do it.
