OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — A 22-year-old woman is accused of putting eye drops in her roommate’s water bottle to make her sick.

Luciana Reichel, of Brookfield, is charged with placing foreign objects in edibles, a felony.

According to a Winnebago County criminal complaint, Reichel’s roommate was nauseated and had diarrhea, loss of appetite and fatigue in October. Her doctor couldn’t explain the symptoms.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Reichel told someone she had spiked her roommate’s water and laughed about it. That person told the victim, and police got involved.

Reichel allegedly said she was inspired by a scene in the movie “Wedding Crashers.”

Last fall, both women attended Fox Valley Technical College, but were placed a University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh dorm.

Reichel could face up to 3 1/2 years in prison if convicted.
