Officers say Wilcox “admitted to drinking one half of a bottle of hand sanitizer, she drank the bottle of hand sanitizer on her own merit.”

“I just saw it there so I drank it,” Wilcox told a local news outlet.

“It’s the same alcohol in beer, in wine and Jack Daniels, however, it is more concentrated,” Dr. Danyal Ibrahim said appearing on Middletown local news.

Wilcox was released on $500 bond.
