NJ Woman Charged With Lacing Boyfriend’s Food With Cocaine

SOUTH BOUND BROOK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — It wasn’t the usual secret ingredient.

Authorities have accused a New Jersey woman of spiking her boyfriend’s dinner with cocaine.

Monica Cookman, 29, of South Bound Brook faces poisoning, aggravated assault and possession of cocaine charges.

Cookman’s boyfriend told police his heart began racing and his throat went numb when he started eating.

Police say Cookman admitted putting two lines of cocaine in her boyfriend’s food.

South Bound Brook Police Chief William King told The Courier News of Bridgewater the boyfriend didn’t appear to have suffered serious injury.

Cookman’s boyfriend has asked police for a restraining order against her.

It’s not clear if Cookman has hired a lawyer.

If found guilty, what should be Cookman’s sentence? Sound off in our comments section below…

      I think your right Mike.

    What a waste of good coke…

  5. piscataway says:

    I know both of them and if I was him I would of left her years ago !!!!!!!!!

    1. anonymous says:

      I told him the same thing. He feared for the boys, that’s why he stayed!

  6. bubba jones says:

    Force feed her a kilo brick

  7. paul says:

    I have plenty of friends that would love to have her as a personal chef

  8. anonymous says:

    I personally know this woman, and she is a wackjob. Her boyfriend isn’t abusive, so you can forget about your moronic idea of the events. He has left her in the past because of her abuse & psychotic episodes, and apparently this time she wanted to make sure that he paid. PATHETIC!

    1. Surfin Bird says:

      then he is stupid then for coming back so its his fault

      1. anonymous says:

        I wouldn’t say he’s stupid. He has two children with her, and she uses them as leverage to get him to stay with her. It’s sad that she went as far as to try to KILL him … they were breaking up, he was finally leaving her, and this is what she did.

        If you don’t personally know them, do NOT blame him for staying out of fear of what this wackjob would do to his children!

  9. Surfin Bird says:

    case of self defense from an abusive boyfriend?

  10. Bryan says:

    Maybe she needed the additional ingredient to enhance the taste of the food…she was tired of hearing her food sucked!

  11. DC says:

    his name is Cookman…she tried to make it Cokeman

  12. Frank Diamato says:

    They’re both probably cokeheads. I’m sure they’ve done plenty of lines together.

  13. Alan says:

    Throw the book at her!!!!!!!
