Arrested: Woman Caught on Video Putting Drano in Husband’s Drink

A California woman was arrested after her husband discovered she was putting Drano in his daily beverage.

Newport Beach radiologist Jack Chen filed for divorce and a restraining order against his wife, Yue “Emily” Yu, 45, after catching her on camera poisoning his drink on three separate occasions.

In March and April, court documents say that Chen noticed that his daily beverage had a chemical taste to it.

He went to the doctor after developing symptoms and was diagnosed with two stomach ulcers, gastritis, and esophagitis. He then placed cameras in the kitchen.

Chen wrote in the restraining order request:

“Based upon the diagnosis and my suspicions about the chemical taste, I put cameras in our kitchen. I obtained footage of Emily poisoning me on three occasions.”

Steven Hittelman, Chen’s attorney, told USA Today that his client recorded Yu putting drain cleaner in his drinks on July 11, 18, and 25.

He explained:

“After the first video of finding out she was poisoning him, he took his morning tea and put Saran wrap over it. She still peeled it off and put the Drano in it.”

In the document, Chen accused his wife and mother-in-law of being physically and emotionally abusive to him and his two children.

Yu’s attorney, David E. Wohl, told Insider:

“Ms. Yu vehemently and unequivocally denies ever attempting to poison her husband or anyone else.”

She was arrested on August 4 and released the next day after posting a $30,000 bail. She has not been charged. Chen was granted a restraining order until the hearing set for August 18.
