Man accused of trying to hook wife on meth

BREMERTON — A Bremerton man is accused of secretly slipping methamphetamine into his wife’s cigarette in a plan to make her join him in addiction.

Police say the man wanted his wife to experience a meth high so she’d understand why he likes it so much. He gave her a cigarette Saturday that had been spiked with the drug.

The Kitsap Sun reports she started freaking out and he told her what he had done.

The woman called police Sunday and the 20-year-old man was arrested for investigation of assault.

The man had reportedly told friends he had a 15-point plan to get his wife addicted to meth.
