Shot of "Whiskey" Turns Out to be Drano

Shot of "Whiskey" Turns Out to be Drano

There are 13 comments on the www.wwmt.com story from Feb 28, 2008, titled Shot of "Whiskey" Turns Out to be Drano. In it, www.wwmt.com reports that:

A man from West Michigan is in a coma after drinking Drano inadvertantly. The chemicals in the drain de-clogger destroyed some of Allen Wells' organs, and he's already had some major surgeries to repair the damage.

Allen's brothers, Joe Diskin and Dan Wells, say Allen thought the bottle he was drinking from when he took that dangerous swig, was whiskey.

Police are still investigating how the drano ended up in a whiskey bottle and how Wells came to drink it.

Relatives have set up an account to help Wells and his family cover medical costs. You can make donations at any National City branch under the name "Kellie Greene."

Hmmm. Drain cleaner (a common denominator of meth production) finds it's way into a whiskey bottle. I see nothing suspicious with that.

Do you?

Yeah, I would see it as suspicious if I didn't know what I was talking about.
Since I do, I'll let you (and anyone who reads what you had to say), that he wasn't doing anything of the sort.
He was poisoned. He and his family are suffering a great deal, thanks for your support.

If drano was used for meth then you could say that... but it's not.
And who in their right mind would drink that? Drano Does not have the same consistency as whiskey! Go figure!! Wow there are crazy people around here...

Some of the dranos are very liquid now and they combine with a second liquid when poured out.

Okay, Al is a "swigger". He picked up the bottle and he guzzled a big drink. Then he got up and ran outside. Another person took a drink of that bottle but didn't swallow because he sensed the burning in his mouth. Then they ran out to see what happened to Al. It was too late.

Drano IS an ingredient in Meth ... and half of the people who were there that night ... Are "Meth friendly".

The people there say it was intended for someone else. They say they know the lady who took it there. This might not be true

Strangly enough a guy name Tim Bolen was recently paroled to that house. If you go to the MDOC OTIS website you'll see he is on parole for operating a meth lab.

Someone was hiding drano in a liquor bottle becausae they intended on using it to cook meth. BOTTOM LINE

Maybe these fools will learn a lesson and "KICK THE HABIT"

OR BETTER YET GO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT ALLEN AND HIS FAMILY.WE ALL KNOW THAT ALLEN DIDN'T DO THIS TO HIMSELF, MAYBE YOU SHOULD SHED SOME LIGHT ON WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.WHAT IF THIS WERE A FAMILY MEMBER OF YOURS WOULDN'T YOU WANT HELP OR WOULD YOU PREFER PEOPLE TO BE COWARDS AND NOT COME FORWARD?

The Bottom Line? I say bottom of the barrel you friggin coward. You should quit wasting your time posting this on here, and take your information to the police, oh unless you were there? Are you "meth friendly" yourself? Sounds like it. This family is suffering at the hands of someone, is it you? We'd like to get to know you a little better. Exactly how is it that you know the address? His family doesn't, the police haven't given that info, so are you clairvoyant or what? Figure it out creep, you need to either shut up or put out the info you think you know to the authorities. You're the only habit I like to kick right now.

By the way, I find no Tim Bolen on OTIS's website. Very interesting, maybe you're Tim?

I found him now, but your info is still incorrect according to OTIS, he's on parole for Resisting arrest, attempted larceny, possessing stolen property, maybe you're not Tim. Far cry from a meth lab. But you're not too smart, did you think no one would go look?

I agree 100% with Kellie. If you know so much about what happened that night "Mr Bottom Line" You being the stand up citizen you would like people to think you are by your Kick the Habit comment, why don't you go to the police with all of your first hand knowledge. It must be first hand as you know more details of how things went down that night then his own family or even his so called girlfriend. And by the way has any one heard from the girlfriend's daughter yet? Nice how she has disappeared!
