Authorities say a Sharp County man has been charged with a class Y felony after he drugged his wife’s drink with methamphetamine.

According to court records filed on Sept. 22nd concerning 34-year-old Caleb Hale and other members of the family a judge ordered drug tests for Caleb and the victim. 

The victim and Hale stated they would test positive for marijuana and Hale stated he might test positive for methamphetamine.

Hale and the victim were tested and both tested positive for methamphetamine. The victim was adamant she had not ingested methamethamine.

While speaking with the DHS family service worker, Hale admitted he had put methamphetamine in the victim’s drink without her knowledge so he could have sex with the victim.

After court proceedings were finished, Hale and the victim agreed to come to the sheriff’s office to answer questions.

While being interviewed, Hale admitted he had put a “chuck of methamphetamine” in the victim’s drink without her knowledge.

Hale was placed under arrest and charged with one count of introduction of a controlled substance into the body of another person, a class Y felony.

Bond for Hale was set at $7,500 but was revoked Sept. 20 after Hale violated the conditions of his bond and was found to have violated a no contact order, in possession of a firearm and tested positive for THC.

Hale was again arrested and booked back into the Sharp County Jailed .
