SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. A South Kingstown man who became ill after he drank from a beer bottle ingested a caustic liquid.
Police say the liquid that sent Michael Darigan to the hospital last Sunday resembles lye.

Lye is a highly concentrated solution of potassium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide. It's often found in commercial drain and oven cleaners.

The 53-year-old Darigan found the bottle along his jogging route last week.

Sergeant Thomas Owens says there's no evidence suggesting Darigan was personally targeted.

He found a bottle of something, when he was running, and thought it was a good idea to drink it? There's got to be more to this story.

not the first time I knew of someone drinking beer bottles they found... me and a guy were cleaning a parking lot next to a military pier once and found 3 beer cans... they were near a pay phone since last night.. our conclusion was a drunkard was making a phone call and put the remains of his 6 pack or whatnot down and forgot they were there when he returned to his ship... I didnt want them because I only drink hard liquor, but the guy I was with downed em both..

I still think it sounds like asking for trouble. Cans are more tamper proof than bottles. There has to be more to this story.
