(Newser) – Today, in really stupid reasons to end up in jail: A North Carolina woman is charged with trying to poison five family members after one of them refused to share some cheese with her. A statement from the Nash County Sheriff's Office said 24-year-old Tiara Drake wanted some of a relative's cheese on Friday, but the woman refused to share and, per WRAL, told her to get a different kind of cheese out of the fridge. (Sadly, no one seems to be reporting which kind of cheese Drake allegedly wanted so badly.)

The sheriff's office said Drake awakened before the rest of the family the next morning and used detergent, window cleaner, and a household cleanser to poison the cheese. The rest of the family made breakfast with the cheese and began eating it before one of them determined it was tainted. Drake is charged with five counts of attempted first-degree murder and jailed under $50,000 bond. She had a court appearance yesterday but didn't have an attorney at the hearing.

No word on which kind of cheese she so badly wanted.
